When I was looking C# stored procedure with parameters question, there is a weird situation.
I found 7 same answer. (Not 100% same)
Look at these;
In my opinion, this should not be in Stack Overflow. Because SO is useful, simple, self and clean. We love this properties. There is also properties like dublicate for questions, why shouldn't be for answers?
For this, maybe should be like a Dublicate Answer button. And we can choose which answer(s) duplicate. Then moderators can approve or reject. Or also higher 50K users. I don't know.
People can find the right solution (Also there is "accepted answer" but this can be help). Questions with a lot of answers, prevent for salad questions :) And a simple, clean and nice site.
EDIT: Yes you are right. We can't decide which answer should live but what we can do about this subject?
