Today I commented on an answer which I later realized was from the OP attempting to give more information in response to comments. I commented to OP that the original question should have been edited, rather than posting an "answer".
I moved that information into the original post and flag the "answer" as "not an answer", but I'm concerned that the "answer" could get deleted without OP knowing it and OP may never get to see my comment (at least not in the original context).
It seems from reading this question/answer, that it is likely that OP will never actually get to see my comment in the original context (next to the "answer") which may make my comment difficult to understand.
Is this something I should worry about? Should I try to give OP some time before I flag it? Is there a generally accepted protocol here?
