swim is reffering to the exploit/bug. If you mean the website, well, I suspect if it disappeared along with github all of a sudden, then the global markets would have a sudden downturn as bugs and code bases around the world break and don't get fixed. Quite simply, it's a website that can be used to look up the solution to every possible critera of bug ever. (And if it's not on there, you can ask) That is powerful, and very useful to the world.

~ swim ~ I think the OP was referring to the (Q&A) forum/website rather than the concept of a stack overflow in programming. Anyway, nice explanation.

Developers just meme it and say its their life saver or hero. Its over-praised because of its popularity. Also most search engines put S.O at the top of the results of any programming related searches since that site gets a lot of hits + its more trust worthy. Querying untrustworthy sites will make a search engine useless. Im not a member of S.O but I see it to be good. I go on it as a last resort and sometimes find what I need. Some people dont have books or classes so S.O may be a lot more helpful for them than to us.

The first line of ~ swim ~'s response: "The importance is in the negative context, i.e avoid stackoverflow as it will crash your program." I legit think this could be a valid statement when applied to either context: 🤣😂 a) stackoverflow (memory) b) stackoverflow.com (Q&A website) Personally, I'm proud to have ~ swim ~ as our community's very own Stackoverflow engine alternative. 😉🙏

Dude stack overflow is "programming meme". Programmers who cannot find solution should ask for help.

"a quick Google search" leads to stack overflow being the first result 99/100 times when it comes to programming questions. it's hard to explain the difference. I'd say there is none.
