@SethJ AllTorahHere.com would be enough of a source to not downvote the poster, who doesn't necessarily need to evaluate the provenance of every source if it looks worthwhile to post. (Unless you know the data presented from the site or the presentaion of it is inaccurate.)

Also, note that your answer was downvoted before your edits, when it was very unclear what you meant. Perhaps the downvoter has yet to return and change his vote.

@GershonGold Questions about erections, time zones, lulavs, brachot, money, technology can all have more upvotes if they are phrased as good questions for our format, which is not every question ever. An exact formulation of what kinds of questions are ideal is still being worked out on MSO (here), but questions are generally expected to include motivation for asking. Since this was intended as a self-answer, see this post for more about the potential pitfalls of such questions.

You need to know the mother's name to make a Mi Shebeirach? Why is it inappropriate?

@SethJ Me or the three others who upvoted my above comment? The answer isn't bad, it's more the question that's the problem.

the question doesn't cite a pasuk so not sure why original tags were relevant.

It seems like your question is: why doesn't the pasuk use rabbinic terminology?

@GershonGold I already did provide proof. The pasuk.
