Is there a benefit to aggregating all of the answers to a question into the top-voted answer as in this question?

On one hand it concentrates the answers in one place, but on the other hand the vast majority of the up-votes go to a single answer and user, based on information provided by other users.


I don't think such answers really add much. Often that's a sign that the question isn't that great a fit for Stack Exchange.

When a collated answer seems appropriate, I think it's good form to mark it community wiki (something I'm generally opposed to for questions, by the way), unless the person doing the aggregation provides meaningful commentary relating the different answers to each other.
