We all know that Stack Exchange is not a forum. Well that dealt with Stack Overflow specifically, but it applies to the whole network.
Sometimes, new users will post multiple answers thinking that they are commenting/posting to a thread (e.g. a typical forum structure). For example, see my Q/A on Finance where @me171 posted two separate answers. I tried to guide him/her into the appropriate places to learn about the site/network.
However, there are two answers posted by that person that serve better as comments. What do we do when a newbie posts answers in the format of comments/replies to a thread? Do we merge them, delete and migrate to chat? I am nowhere near 10k on any site and not a moderator, so excuse me if this is a simple problem to be solved!
