Why aren't answers held to the same rules as questions?
Answers can only be flagged, or voted upon. We see many examples of new-to-Stack Overflow-users posting comments, questions, and follow-ups as answers to their own questions. Why can't we vote to delete as "Not a valid Answer," or other reasons?
I don't think downvotes should be the solution here, as I'm not a fan of punishing the many new-to-Stack Overflow-users who unknowingly do these types of things.
- You must have 3k rep to vote for answer-deletion.
