What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I've seen this a few times, someone must think SO is like usenet with threads, and they post a related question as an answer to someone else's question, rather than posting their own question.

Here's an example.

If I see this kind of post, should I flag it? or just let it be? (there aren't too many of these so they add hardly any noise)

Post a comment, then flag it. The user will get notified and the post will be taken away.

Downvote it if you're really feeling ornery.

I'd say it absolutely deserves a downvote. If the answer (Yes, it does say "Your Answer" when posting) doesn't address the question, it is a bad answer. Not good, not neutral. – Travis Jul 29 '09 at 17:08
