Blatantly wrong accepted answer
If an answer is wrong (factually, logically or any way that is obvious), then how should it be dealt with ? Although such answers are usually down-voted, but is there any way to have them removed as they in no way add to the discussion/question.
Is flagging the answer for deletion the correct way to go about it ?
I ask this as I have flagged such answers twice previously [on MSO, quite a few on SO], one of which was accepted and the answer deleted (this one had 12 up-votes) while the other was rejected with a message :
declined - flags should not be used to indicate technical inaccuracies, or an altogether wrong answer
Ok, so the appropriate way seems to be to downvote and comment rather than flag and delete. What then happens to quality control then ? If something is absolutely wrong, I dont feel that it in anyway adds to the quality of content on the site, and as it is, there is quite a bit of poor content on SO.
