I would like to nominate Alex's answer to Is it forbidden for a woman to learn Gemara? It is a very sensitive issue, yet he could still keep calm and give a lot of relevant sources to support his claim. In addition to listing these sources, he gave a really good summary and interpretation of the conflicting views.

I'd like to nominate robev's answer to Did King David's parents abandon him? (Psalm 27). The answer presents a clear, thoroughly-researched, and carefully-footnoted explanation of a midrashic interpretation of the context for a puzzling passage. The presentation in this answer goes beyond what I have come to expect from sourced answers (let alone others).

I’d like to nominate Joel K’s answer to where techias hameisim is alluded to in the Torah. It’s well detailed, in an easy-to-read format, that answers the question very well, albeit very lengthy.

Shalom's answer to Can a woman divorce her husband and then convert to Judaism? responded sensitively and informatively to a tricky "outsider"-type question. This was one of those cases where the asker had an inkling that there could be issues but didn't know enough about Judaism to ask about specifics. Shalom did a great job of thinking of and expressing what some of the major issues would be, all in service of a very-appropriate overall "ask a rabbi about your specific brand of this tricky situation" message.

I would like to nominate Double AA's answer to my question Does a pregnant or nursing woman fast on a postponed Tish'ah B'Av? The answer is extremely comprehensive, well-structured and cogently argued.

mbloch's answer to "How can tzedakah to the needy of Israel be justified?" cites disparate secondary sources for a well-rounded answer.
