How do you handle such questions: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/15380540/how-to-connect-android-with-php-mysql?
This particular question was, naturally, closed. But there are numerous times that I have seen this happen on SO. I know It’s OK to Ask and Answer Your Own Questions. But is there a line where we draw a line on what borders on users treating it like their personal blog site and where users ask a legit question only to find their own solution a little later and post that as the solution?
What really prompted me to ask this question was the growing propensity to get into arguments or at times rationalize something that cannot or shouldn't be. A trend mostly seen in newer users. I am know to be sarcastic in my comments at times (I am that in real life too). But never caustic or personal!! Do we just take a step back in such cases? Should we indulge in hit-and-run closures? I normally leave a comment when I downvote / vote to close a question. Should I stop doing this for fear of getting obnoxious replies from authors or even retaliation downvotes - March 11 and 12 (in the question linked at the top)?
What is the general practice followed by the more tenured users in such cases?
