I voted to close as a dupe/too localized and then answered the question.

My solution is correct, It got +1/-4 but OP accepted it. the comments on my answers are saying you should not answer a dupe, or you answered and closed, so that I will earn points. Few thinking as answer is incorrect so got downvotes.

Now I want to delete the answer, I commented and asked OP to un-accept but he is not doing so, can I flag it to moderator?

    @SamIam If he knows that the answer shouldn't be there, and that it's better off being deleted, I think it's great that he's willing to delete it himself even though it has positive rep. If find it unfortunate that a lot of terrible answers can get lots of justified downvotes but one or two pity upvotes means they get positive rep, so the owner won't delete it. – Servy Mar 12 '13 at 15:55
