Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

In the link below one of the users posted an answer. Collected a bounty for the same.

how custom listview search i do not pass array list to custom listview class

The below quote is from the answer in the link

nobody give its right answer of this question, and it is wastage of our points with others.. f**k

Is this not inappropriate. The user accepts the answer. The answer posted does not attempt to answer the question. (probably uses inappropriate words).

I had flagged a comment posted by the person who asked the question on the same post. It was removed by the moderators.

So should i flag the answer in this case?

This is totally "not an answer" – Hugo Dozois Apr 22 '13 at 14:44
@HugoDozois so should i flag the answer as inappropriate. Is the words used in the answer not offensive or rude? – Raghunandan Apr 22 '13 at 14:45
You could flag it as inappropriate, but I think the best thing here is to flag it with a custom flag, explaining the situation a bit. – Hugo Dozois Apr 22 '13 at 14:46
This looks a lot like a suck-puppet case, where he asked his friend to post on the question and gave him the bounty instead of putting it on any other answer. – Hugo Dozois Apr 22 '13 at 14:47
@HugoDozois ok i understand. Is the words used not rude or offensive in this case? – Raghunandan Apr 22 '13 at 14:47

I find it amusing how they're talking about "our points". @RobertHarvey maybe you could check if there's some other reputation shenanigans going on? – slhck Apr 22 '13 at 14:48
Yeah, that's weird that they both use the phrase nobody give its right answer. Aaaaaaand suspended. – LittleBobbyTables Apr 22 '13 at 14:55
@slhck: There is another (deleted) answer there that says basically the same exact thing from a second user, who is actually the user who awarded that +50 bounty to the one that just got deleted. Gee... – animuson Apr 22 '13 at 14:57

Flags are appropriate on these kinds of answers.
