Recently, someone asked this:
The asker states that they did not personally read the story in question, but instead copies someone else's description of the story from a web forum. It seems like the asker may not be able to determine whether any given answer is correct, nor provide additional details. On the other hand, these questions can certainly have perfectly "good" answers.
Are story ID questions like this, in which the asker never actually read the story in question, allowed?
