Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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 got an answer from a user who has nothing but down voted answers. The bad part is the answer given looks ok, but is wrong. Is there a way to report him?

Downvote it, leave a comment stating that it's wrong and how it's wrong. I don't think it's necessary to do more. – Mysticial Sep 24 '12 at 1:27
Know that with enough downvoted answers, the user will eventually, probably, incur the wrath of the automatic post ban. – Michael Petrotta Sep 24 '12 at 1:43

There is no reason to report that user: he may be a nice person trying to help to the best of his abilities, yet the questions that he attempts to answer are too hard for him at the moment. Downvoting his incorrect answers is the best course of action: eventually he will either "get the message" and research his answers better, or his privilege to post new answers will be suspended until he fixes his old ones.

Sure he means well, but sometimes just because a person means well isn't justification to "let him go". – Celeritas Sep 24 '12 at 2:24
+1, nice shot folk. – Sahil Mahajan Mj Sep 24 '12 at 6:15
