I use Stack Overflow a lot. When I have any programming question in any language, Stack Overflow answers are the first to come up in my Google searches. From my understanding, that is the intent.
Is that what we want to have happen to all the StackExchange forums? Be the first hit when anyone has a question? In Stack Overflow, I've seen people ask basic questions and get shot down because there are other resources on the web that answer those same questions.
For example (is subject to but not limited to):
If you Google that same questions, there's millions of videos and other forums and articles that answer that same question.
I guess my real question/concern is: Do we ask popular questions on this site that already have adequate answers on the web?
