While browsing a site in the network I thought of a question that hadn't been asked before. Before posting it I did a quick online search and found what seems to be a reliable answer.
Is it now bad form to ask that question and post the answer with a quote block and a link to that site? I don't really have the technical knowledge to add a personal touch and would really just be copying the answer given on the other site.
Answering your own questions is encouraged, is it encouraged even in this case?
To clarify and summarise: is it frowned upon to answer your own question with an answer you didn't write yourself but copied from an external site (assuming the source allows such reuse)?
