This question already has an answer here:

Following sequence of events occurred on using brackets with javascript import syntax:

  1. First answer was posted, but was wrong.

  2. I posted my answer, which was correct :-)

  3. First answer was then modified to match my answer (with attribution)

Meanwhile, the first answer got a total of four up-votes, some from when it was still wrong. My answer has one. There is no accepted answer yet.

I guess this falls into the "grin-and-bear-it-and-move-on" category? What are the ethics of essentially posting a different answer which is still timestamped with the time of an earlier, incorrect answer? Is this flaggable?
