I flagged an answer as not an answer because it contained just a link (or a little more than a link), and my flag was rejected because, "flags should not be used to indicate technical inaccuracies, or an altogether wrong answer."

I was not flagging it because it was technically inaccurate, or because it was wrong. I flagged it because it was a little more than a link, and the FAQFAQ says:

Answers that do not fundamentally answer the question may be removed. This includes answers that are …

  • commentary on the question or other answers
  • asking another, different question
  • "thanks!" or "me too!" responses
  • exact duplicates of other answers
  • barely more than a link to an external site
  • not even a partial answer to the actual question

In which way should an answer containing just a little more than a link, or two, be flagged?
