This advice has been embedded for some time in the Statalist FAQ (URL
is at the foot of every Statalist posting):

Please do not assume that the literature familiar to you is familiar to all members of Statalist. Do not refer to publications with just minimal details (e.g., author and date). Questions of the form "Has anyone implemented the heteroscedasticity under a full moon test of Sue, Grabbit, and Runne (1989)?" admittedly divide the world. Anyone who has not heard of the said test would not be helped by the full reference to answer the question, but they might well appreciate the full reference.

This is more than a matter of good form. You are more likely to get
a useful reply if your posting is informative. In addition, the procedure known to you under one reference may be known to others
under another reference, even in another discipline.
