A question asked today, "Camundongo vs rato!", can easily be answered by merely checking the two words in a dictionary -- writing the question probably took longer than finding the answer (though not writing it).
At the same time, it is the kind of question people are likely to google for, and the question quickly attracted various comments, showing an interest that seem to legitimize the post. Besides, the site badly needs a stronger flow of questions, so maybe we shouldn't be too picky.
In this case, actually curious myself about the answer, I let it be and even shared what I found. But, in general, shouldn't we curb such "trivial" questions?
Edit: Apparently I didn't search well when I posted this question. Now I found that this subject has already been discussed here:
Question without prior research
Sobre questões superficiais
Estamos abertos a qualquer tipo de pergunta que verse sobre a língua portuguesa?
and the community seems to be rather inclined to the openness advocated by Jorge B. in his answer.
But we can still use the votes here to gauge the opinions on the issue and see if anything changed in these 3+ years.
