How does this site feel about questions posted only in order to share the related answer, added by OP as they post their question, as in How should I respond to an offer to pay a bribe for authorship fraud?. It feels to me as if someone is editing a FAQ page, maybe in order to ease future reference to standard answers, but does it as a pseudo question.
I’m decidedly no fan. What is the community opinion? Are there related rules?
As I try to submit this, I see a checkbox “answer your own question Q&A style.” Is this now encouraged? It makes little sense for a site as this one.
Edit after cag51’s comment:
I mean specifically on this site. The linked self-answered questions in the meta answer address common coding situations. I’m also familiar with the second reason given, and have done it myself (later find an answer to a question I asked on math.SE, and posted it). With the typically softer type of questions here, it seems to me a possible platform for soap-boxing - not in the case at hand, although I don’t see why it needed to be asked. “Should I still pursue an academic career? Yes, and here is why.” It’s like a blog - or could turn into one. And my remark is only about post+insta-answer situations.
