Yesterday, I posted an answer on Stack Overflow that as evidenced in the chain of comments, and restated in How can we make angle brackets more intuitive? due to the angle brackets getting eaten, myself and others were answering based on flawed evidence. After this was pointed out, a very authoritative answer was provided and I edited my answer to be the original text struck out with a note that I had been corrected by someone else. Today, I see that my answer has been re-edited to no longer be struck out and my note that I was wrong has been removed. So, now it looks like I answered incorrectly and just ignored it. I'd rather indicate that my original answer was incorrect and that I'm deferring to a better answer than to just leave my incorrect answer sitting there.
- Why was my edit undone?
- What should I have done instead?
Edit: Just FYI, I did search on both Stack Overflow and here on meta for related posts and didn't see any. Apologies in advance if I missed a related question.
