I'm pretty new to SO (48 days into it) and I enjoy reading/contributing quite a bit. I ran into one issue today that I found frustrating...
I posted an answer to a simple question today. At (almost) exactly the same time, another, incorrect answer was posted. Much to my surprise, the incorrect answer began receiving up-votes! I quickly (and respectfully) pointed out to the poster that their answer was incorrect. Forty minutes later, they edited their response, copied my answer and began receiving more up-votes.
Is this a generally accepted practice? If not, Is this a "flag worthy" issue?
I understand that this is not a huge issue. I'm just attempting to learn proper SO etiquette. Personally, I would have deleted the incorrect post after that period of time, instead of editing it.
