There have been a number of answers to questions where the answerer has specifically stated "this is my answer" or words to that effect. They contain no references to back up their answer, and don't claim to speak for any group. How should we treat these?
To give some context, the Skeptics site would throw such answers off immediately, if they didn't contain a reference to back them up. StackOverflow allows them, on the grounds that a solution that doesn't work will get voted down. Programmers accepts them because it's intended to be a more subjective site.
The danger I see here is that if we allow such answers, the voting becomes a popularity contest. How many voters like the answer, without any check on whether it actually represents the view of Christians as a whole or any significant subset of them. In the early stages a relatively small number of like-minded contributors can have a disproportionate effect on the site.
My proposal is that it becomes accepted policy to encourage voting down of any answer that does not claim, with some sort of reference, to speak for at least some part of Christianity. If we don't ground our answers in referrable facts, then the site will descend to the level of a discussion site, and will be doomed as a usable reference.
(By fact I mean of course the fact "this is what Christians believe" without getting into the argument as to whether it is true).
EXAMPLES: Flimzy's answer here is a good example. The first part is reasonable, but the second clearly personal. (Sorry to pick you as an example, Flimzy - nothing personal. You are a good contributor.)
