This is probably more of a general SE Meta question than one specific to our site, but it came up in this question: What song has the phrase "waka waka wee"?
Are we writing answers primarily for the person who asked the question --is our first and highest responsibility to that person --or primarily for the larger community that might find it useful?
I guess the possible answers are
a) the querent
b) the community
c) both should be considered equally.
