Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 127 Stack Exchange communities.

There is a particular question on Stack Overflow which I found interesting and I don't think it is poorly written, but the accepted answer I find goes against everything that Stack Overflow stands for (and it has an upvote. WTF?).

I raised it for moderator attention, although I'm not sure what the outcome could possibly be. I just wanted to know what others thought of this particular case.

Yeah, it feels strange flagging an answer posted by the asker for mod attention, but in cases like this, it's definitely merited. I've done this a couple of times myself. –  Cody Gray Apr 18 '11 at 13:08

I think I agree; that isn't an answer to the question, and isn't helpful to anyone including the OP. Fortunately that answer (ahem) no longer exists.

I can't speak for the downvote, other than it isn't part of a group of dodgy / inappropriate votes or anything like that - just an odd vote. Sometimes it happens.
