What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

A user, probably to be helpful, tried to add an answer to a closed question by editing it.

I rejected the edit, without analyzing the question nor the answer, on the principle that an answer isn't welcome on a closed question.

Was I right, or was I just acting like some kind of rigid ayatollah ?

Yes, you were. Editing an answer directly into the body of the question is never acceptable.
