Why do some people answer in comments?
I've noticed more and more that people will post valuable information (intended to help solve the problem) as a comment instead of as an answer.
This drives me batty! But worse, it makes me question what should be a comment and what should be an answer. I tend to err on the side of posting an answer over a comment unless I'm doing something like asking for clarity.
What can we do to prevent this mis-organization of information? It seems that this has been an issue for several years now, and I wish oh wish there could be a solution. Do others just feel like this is an acceptable trend? Am I the only one who can't stand it? Why do SO users feel the need to do such a thing!
