I've been feeling the same way, too. It's not about the "too basic" questions (hey, those are great for newer members to practice composing good Answers!), but for me, it's about answers being found:
- in the top 5 Google hits using the Question title
- within a link/source included in the Question itself
The answers are at their fingertips, but for some reason the asker decides to ask others instead of spending a minute looking at what they already have.
I don't think that a "close reason" is a good idea, though. First, there are very real cultural reasons why some people will ask others instead of looking at primary data. Second, it is also often the case that the asker did perform research, but they didn't include it in the question (either due to laziness or to wanting an answer unbiased by the research performed).
In either case, I believe that we need to prompt for research, not to close it for a canned reason. When I do this, there are 2 distinct camps: those who readily provide the research performed, or those who lash out that we didn't provide an easy answer. For the former, the problem is solved, for the latter, the available options or "Other" should suffice.
We do expect that askers have performed some basic research. We can encourage and mentor the community to do that.
