A question was asked about resistance and voltage today which struck me as off-topic because of no apparent research. Also, there was no conceptual discussion which indicated a difficulty about understanding.
At this Meta question the PSE community lays out a comprehensive discussion about sufficient prior research.
When I read the question, I immediately down-voted it and flagged to close, but there were two answers already posted with no down-votes (their privilege).
I suppose my point for asking this question is to raise the issue, again, that we are getting low-quality traffic and people are obliging it by giving answers. I am not complaining about a simple question, but about the fact that a quick web search would turn up the answer already written somewhere.
If we are to enforce the prior research clause, would it be appropriate, in addition to down-voting, to flag as "low quality" so that the moderators would have an immediate better picture of what is happening (rather than waiting for members to close).
