I recently answered a question which I had misinterpreted on my first read-through. My answer was dead wrong, and, rightfully, it was downvoted and comments were added that explained my error.
In this case, I edited my answer and commented that the answer has been fixed, however the downvote and comments remained. This leads me to the following question:
What is the correct response to obsolete comments on an incorrect answer?
- Flag the comment as obsolete immediately
- Flag the comment as obsolete after waiting some period of time
- Leave the comment alone (the edit timestamp will be newer than that comment)
- Prevent obsolete comments by deleting your incorrect answer and creating a new answer
Or is there some other more appropriate course of action
