Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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
