note: I didn't down vote! (yet)
I flagged an answer earlier, as it really wasn't an answer at that time, however user later added a JSfiddle example (which didn't really answer question either just repeated the OP's post) but that then got a few comments going on, and got OP engaged so there were some useful comments before answerer bowed out. OP also commented via their own comments and on other posts
It is the habit of this particular user, s/he should have used the comments IMHO to extract the extra info needed or make their original observation in the first place.. and I shouldn't have been so quick off the mark with a flag! I'm not worried about the wrong flag but what if anything should or can be done in a situation like this?
I know it was likely a "FGITW" type answer, where user was hoping to edit (may still happen) but again IMO it failed this time, if it was me who'd tried it I would delete but then I wouldn't want to delete what may be useful comments = hence the quandry and question
Is there anything that can be done to either retract the flag or explain why the flag in the first place (beyond the original not an answer!)?
My apologies to whomever saw my flag!
