How do you know if something you want to say should be an answer or just a comment?
I assumed that anything that answers the question should be in an "answer" field, and clarifications should be under "comment". But I found this question (Words relating to a chain) in the English Stackexchange site.
The original question asks for words related to the word "chain" and all the answers so far were provided via comment to the original question, instead of in a separate answer field.
Is this the recommended way to answer a question that requires only one-word answers? Or should the comments to the original question be converted to answers instead?
