Yes, and that's why the site is great!
One of the goals of SO is to become the canonical place to find good answers to any programming question:
Spolsky: ... But if it's a simple question like "What does the third argument mean, the documentation doesn't explain what the third argument is" and then explain, you know, there are ways of doing that which are not copyright violations where you just provide the answer, and I think that's awesome because I really do want StackOverflow to answer all these questions, I want it to be the canonical source of knowledge, like, if there was no article on wikipedia about Cuba, just because there's a really good website that tells you everything about Cuba, should you go and make an article about Cuba on Wikipedia? Yeah! Sure! Because it's got to be an encyclopaedia, it's got to have everything!
It's also why one of the founders of the site asked the incredibly simple question "How do I move the turtle in LOGO?"
This is something you could find in Google within seconds, but you'll find answers on random crappy websites where there's some typo in the code, or worse some security issue with the code, and there's no way of fixing it, or posting an alternative solution - this is what StackOverflow does well.
(I'm not quite sure how you would have security issues with LOGO code, but that's not really my point..)
Would it be considered bad form to respond to such a question with, a link like this http://lmgtfy.com/?q=Does+SO+encourage+developer+laziness%3F. On the one hand it could be seen as a slap down, on the other it might genuinely help the asker to see how you found out the answer.
I find answers which are links to Google incredibly unhelpful - mostly because the answer that says "go and search you lazy person!" usually ends up as the first search result..
If it's easy to find the answer on some webpage or in the official documentation - post an answer quoting it, with the link to source and any required attribution... That way not only do you answer the persons question, you gain reputation, you make it easier for others to find the answer in the future, and are helping StackOverflow - everyone wins!
