What is a good way to respond to a boomerang answer, an answer that basically responds with "You don't want to do that, do this other thing"? Maybe I do want to use my cat as a mop for my kitchen floor (Stack Overflow Podcast).
I asked a question, a person answered a bit of it, and then they summarized it with "You only need to trust the service doing the access".
The user put a bit of good work into the answer that I think is useful. But I would like to point out to them that it is not an answer to my question, without losing their work.
