I'm seeing an increase in questions that cite as their source of claim an article that would itself count as a reputable source for this site. It's from a reputable source, it's peer reviewed, or it cites plenty of other sources. More usually many of the above.
The question then takes a claim from the source and says "Is this true?".
The trouble with this is that 1) it's very unlikely that any contributors here are going to be a better position to judge the truth of the claim than the original source 2) since the original source is reputable and referenced we could theoretically say "Yes it is" simply by citing the original claim 3) Usually the only reason to doubt the claim is that the question personally doesn't believe it, or simply doesn't like the conclusion.
Can we have a close reason or something else to deal with question like this?
