Moderators accepting answers on user's behalf after a certain time period

I have seen many questions that have answers, but not even a single post is marked as answer.

It will be good if the moderators have privilege to mark answers

or

is there already a feature like that

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
It's been suggested before - Moderators accepting answers on user's behalf after a certain time period - and it's still a bad idea now. Read the previous answers to learn why... –  Shog9 Jan 5 '11 at 2:10
    
In fairness, it hasn't been [status-declined]... but it doesn't seem to have very good community acceptance either. –  Jon Seigel Jan 5 '11 at 2:52

Some question might have many answers but nothing is accepting because nothing meets the asker's needs, or it might be that several answers are acceptable and the asker does not want to choose just one.

If it makes you feel better once question has an up voted answer it no longer appears on the unanswered list.
