[tor-talk] Stop pushing stackexchange in every thread

I would agree that people should not redirect questions to stackexchange
for two reasons:
1. Stackexchange's stated purpose is to be a repository for the best
answers to questions. When the answer to a question has been hashed out in
some other forum, there is nothing preventing people here from re-posting
the question and best answer on stackexchange for posterity.
2. More importantly, if people constantly redirect others, then someone
who legitimately needs an answer to this question and does a Google search
will pull up a page of posts without an answer to the question, but just a
mass of redirections. This is very frustrating. Search for A, and get a
mass of links with people telling you to search for A.
Just my two bitcoin-cents.
