When is deleting an answer an appropriate response because it 'might not' (in the opinion of someone who displays a basic lack of understanding of the differences between how the windows console and GUI work).
Why wouldn't allowing the original poster to say "gee, that doesn't answer my question" be the correct or normal response? Is it common for moderators who don't know the subject matter to decide what answers the question or not? That just seems wrong. Someone posted an answer to one of my questions that really didn't answer the question that I could see, but I didn't even make that judgment, but asked for clarification. How can someone who doesn't know the topic matter presume to decide what does or doesn't answer the question the person is asking?
Now you can think I wasn't answering the post of the original poster, or not, but shouldn't they be allowed to decide?
FWIW, the question is here:
Why is text line breaking—when cutting and pasting in the console—so much slower than in any other application?
