Most of the answers in islam.SE are based on references from islamqa.info, almost always being just a copy-paste answer.
I've made an analys of the links used in the questions and answers and I found out that the majority links are linking to islamqa.info. Being a member in this community, I've also noticed that most of the answers actually link back there, many times with a big blockquote and a few lines of text saying something like "yes it is haram", "all scholars agree on x". These answers also seem to be upvoted pretty much and fast (which is logically because its the most used source), while other answers, not linking back to that same source, tend to get either downvoted, or not upvoted much at all, even though its a well written answer.
So it seems that the answers ain't judged on their quality but rather on authority (which is subjective matter). Of course, an answer should have some authority, and to be able to back up claims.
How do you think it affect us as a community that most of the answers mostly are based on one source?
Disclaimer: I have no problem with answers linking to islamqa.info in general. As a person, if I know there are different of opinions in a subject, I would want both opinions to be stated (not only the opinion I follow), even though one opinion is stronger or more popular than another.
