Is this a test? Are we allowed to use Wikipedia? Because Wikipedia has a lot on it.

This was a test for understanding that a person not familiar with a particular field (e.g. GP and common law) will not be easily able to find a source on a particular aspect of that field and at the same time verify the information are more-less complete. Therefore, it's much easier for someone familiar with the field to provide a link to appropriate source.

You, sir, have unfortunately failed that test.

I thought it was significant that they were able to distinguish it as a common-law concept. Are you implying this was something like a lucky guess on their part?

My guess is that 'beefhash is not from a common law country and was only able to figure out for sure that the topic is a part of common law.

Their other comments cause me to guess differently.
