When is an answer eligible to be flagged as “not an answer”? What to do?
This answer turned up flagged as not an answer. I'm not actually certain which way it goes - it is 'an' answer, but not quite to the question as asked. I suppose it could be considered a 'best effort' to understand the issue not being enough.
Strictly speaking, if its not an answer, the flag's right, else a downvote might work. How do people lean generally though? What's the general consensus on the issue?
