jsFiddle is a great tool for live preview, however there are lots of answers that goes along this :

Try this : http://jsfiddle.net/s0m3R4nd0mCh4r/

And nothing else is provided in the answer. Very often the code contained is fairly trivial and could be posted in the answer.

Should we edit those post to add the code in the answer? Should we simply ignore them? Is there any thing we could do to prevent people from adding answer like that?

Downvote link only answers.

(If the poster whines about it, read them the standard. Or the site was down and is useless as an answer that points to a door that leads into a brickwall.)

jsFiddle is no different and should be dealt with like the rest of them.

Rescue that code from the knuckled grips of that dumpsite and slap it back into the post where it rightfully belongs.

Otherwise we're only building another ghost town.
