Moderating existing Answers and Comments
While going through questions that have votes for taking specific actions here's my opinion:
Even if an answer is very poor or even wrong, it is still an attempt at an answer.
A lot are just comments, that are posted as answers. IMHO these should not be deleted but just attached to the correct post.
A lot of the answer are basically "me too". If these are deleted the person never gets notified when a correct answer does come along so I attach them as comments to the OP.
Any suggestions as to how I moderate or why could be done right now on this post ;-)
There are no posted guidelines for moderation, @oldturkey03 and I do most of it. @danj, for the most part, still answers most of the Mac questions that I used to do and i have no problem with that. For the most part we both have arrived at the same criteria by using common sense and practice. Mike seems to have more patience and is kinder than I am and not nearly as obstreperous. But he's younger and probably doesn't ache as much as I do yet.
Is this a worthwhile discussion?
