I answered a question - with a valid answer that addressed the question. However, a moderator converted it to a comment and notated it by leaving a link to the FAQ which seems to imply my answer did not address the question. (it did)
Why are the moderators wasting time on things like this when there are more important issues to fix? This seems to be an incorrect application of moving an answer to a comment.
How does this get fixed?
NOTE I added an answer because I was looking for the same thing as the OP. When I found something better than all the other answers I decided to add the solution i found. (the solution I found was created after the original question was posted.)
it was due for an update to reflect more choices/better choices for people. And from what I recall, Jeff, joel, et.al, WANTED things to be updated and did not want stagnant content.
If moderators can't understand that succinct answers are useful then perhaps they should reconsider their status as moderators...
It appears that the link loads slowly and some people see innappropriate content on the page. I do not. So in any case I made a new post with better content and an alternative github url
