Why aren't Answers held to the same rules as Questions? Answers can only be flagged, or voted upon. We see many examples of new-to-so-users posting comments, questions, and follow-ups as Answers to their own Questions, why can't we vote to delete as "Not a valid Answer," or other reasons? I don't think down-votes should be the solution here, as I'm not a fan of punishing the many new-to-so-users who unknowingly do these types of things.
- You must have 3k rep to vote for answer-deletion.
