I guess one would have to clarify what is and isn't possible with the
data. I'm guessing they are trying to scare people/entities away from
trawling SO and repackaging it into another inko/knowledgebase

That having been said, there is a SO clone that was developed by the
folks at biostars.org which is an OSS StackOverflow "clone"


Someone would just need to host it, though.

Given SO's critical mass, though, I think it's hard to argue against
simply using that.
