RIP Philo

What in particular made you say that? Can you elaborate?

I see this several times a month on HN.

I get that they're trying to stimulate a conversation, but it comes off looking like they can't google.  Or follow a link that the parent provided.

Those questions are in the category of "concern trolling". It's a propaganda tactic. Many of the better moderated groups will ban people for doing that stuff.

I was thinking that draw out the original poster, and then can put on their own resume and/or website: "As seen on Hacker News"

They don't say it when there is a link.

They say it as a follow up to an opinion.

No one writes an opinion and posts supporting link and then gets that question.

You're clueless.
