What is meta?

  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I know Jquery is a pretty big thing (45,879 questions) for web developers (myself included), but surely a question as simple as "how to download jquery" doesn't require 6 answers...(and they weren't all posted at the exact same time)

I'm just wondering whether there is a trend to answer these simple questions instead of help make a single answer (or two) better...just seems overkill...

"how to download jquery" does not belong on SO voted to migrate to SU – Nifle Oct 15 '10 at 9:09

@Nifle, just "not belonging on SO" doesn't qualify something for a move to SU. This question doesn't really belong on any SE site. – Pops Oct 15 '10 at 12:54

Answers like that are usually due to the FGITW behavior. This is also particularly noticeable for basic regex and c# questions.
