Is it nice to link to other Q&A sites when answering questions? I know that we don't have expectations as skeptics people. But, I have a bad feeling when we come up with an answer based on someone's saying elsewhere in the internet.
This answer might be a close example (I've edited it now, with a better link from @dmckee). The answerer cites the phrase to some guy at some other Q&A site. Saying by its looks, that's a low quality site for sure. For instance, we don't even know who the guy, or what his specialty in our field is....
Our site is a high-quality Q&A site. We usually come to the conclusion, from each others' answers, based on agreement of previously known facts. And, I'm convinced that this answer is okay with it. I mean, it says that the viscosity of vodkas vary with brands. With some common sense, we all can agree with that. So, the citing doesn't matter here.
What about a technical one? Wouldn't the same "citing to another Q&A site" (well, most are pretty much low quality when compared to us) reduce the quality of our answers?
