In regards to this question (but I have seen it quite often), what is the official policy (or the common practice) for what to do when someone posts a question as an answer to another question? I've seen this happen quite a few times, and I just flag it as "Needs Moderator Attention" but I feel bad putting any more work on moderators, I don't even know if it's worth their attention, and I don't even know what to do? Should we comment and tell them not to post questions as answers? Should we downvote?


Flag it for moderator attention and we will delete it.


IMO I would comment on the question and tell him to ask it as a question and link to the original one.

I wouldn't downvote though.

  • I wouldn't downvote either, but downvotes seem to happen to these a lot. The problem is that if this is a new user who never comes back, their garbage doesn't get cleaned up, so their question-answer stays there. Or is it not worth worrying about? – Super Long Names are Hilarious Oct 14 '09 at 0:01
