Why doesn't WikiAnswers require answerers to cite their sources?

The best practice is for an answerer to cite his or her sources. This can be done by utilizing the Q&A's Related Linksfunction and the superscript formatting tool just like you would use on an essay.It is not required, but it is good practice.It isn't required because some Q&As may be asking for opinions. How would one cite the source of his or her own opinion? Of course, it would be nice to cite the sources with which one used to come to his or her conclusions.There are so many questions and so many answers on this site that it would be impossible for WikiAnswers to require all answers to have sources in order to be published on the site.The reader can also make his or her own decision about the validity of an answer that does not include sources.
