If someone asks here (in the main site) a question and is pleased with a particular answer he/she got, may it be posted in his/her blog without asking permission to the answerer?

Edit: One should post it with the proper attribution. (See comment below by Casebash).

Example: an inequality on p-adic valuation of binomial coefficients (here).

In short, yes, as long as you give proper attribution. What is meant by proper attribution? Well, from the equivalent meta.stackoverflow question:

So let me clarify what we mean by attribution. If you republish this content, we require that you:

  • Visually indicate that the content is from Stack Overflow, Meta Stack Overflow, Server Fault, or Super User in some way. It doesn’t have to be obnoxious; a discreet text blurb is fine.
  • Hyperlink directly to the original question on the source site (e.g., https://stackoverflow.com/questions/12345)
  • Show the author names for every question and answer Hyperlink each author name directly back to their user profile page on the source site (e.g., https://stackoverflow.com/users/12345/username)

By “directly”, I mean each hyperlink must point directly to our domain, and not use a tinyurl or any other form of obfuscation or redirection.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks! I assume the author of the question should give a similar proper attribuition, if she/he republishes her/his question here for the first time. $\endgroup$ – Américo Tavares Aug 25 '10 at 15:35
