I have a specific situation for which I require the input of the community before I take action, because I am not confident enough in my evaluation of the situation to take the appropriate action.
I answered Auto Copy & Paste specific columns depending on ComboBox value about 2 weeks ago, but the OP of the question has now edited the question so many times, my answer no longer makes sense, in fact he integrated my answer into the question and now is asking about another problem.
From Exit strategies for "chameleon questions", I am aware that the normal actions for such situations are:
- Rollback the Edit
- Leave a Comment to the OP to explain
- Delete my answer
- Edit my answer to match the new question.
However, this user has been known to do this same exact thing previously, in fact NullPointerException while reading txt file was also converted to CW because he edited too many times.
I've already done step #2, I left a comment to try to explain, but I'm at a loss on how to handle this. I don't really want to edit my answer to address his new problem as I don't want to encourage this activity, so I'm left with trying to decide whether to delete my answer or rollback his edit so my answer is within the scope of the question.
I would appreciate the input of some more experienced users on how I should handle this specific case? And possibly offer some guidelines on how to make this decision in the future.
