Feature Suggestion: Source

It'd be helpful if at the end of an answer there was a little feature that said where the answer came from. for example:

source:

-I did this.

-4 Hour Body book

-I have six pack abs

-Tim's Blog

-I know a guy...

-educated guess

-i lost 70lbs of fat n 4 months

-suggestion

-website url

-i read it somewhere but can't remember

-i made up this 1980 study to support my argument

I think yahoo answers has a similar feature. You just write in the source. In theory someone can just state their source in their answer, but for the most part they don't so a feature might encourage it. It could cut down on some of the debates and "in theory" answers.

Nice one justin and it is easy enough to do.

I really like idea, and it can be extended to match others from same source, adding external link, etc. so I am adding to list.

To be fair we will do the usual 20 votes thing, people vote on this answer or on lead suggestion above. On 20+ votes, I am adding it to my weekend code plan :)

    It's easy enough for someone just to type it in---you should go on a trip to Thailand instead. more features=more clutter. but if peeps like it cool.
