It happens sometimes that when I vote to close a question which is evidently Off Topic, some user posts an answer.
I know it might be legit (although honestly I'm not sure on this), but this unavoidably encourages other people to do the same. This consequently leads to Off Topic questions staying open for more time than they should.
I understand that new users wouldn't pay attention to this, but also 2000+ users do this and even 5000+ which is always less understandable.
My questions are:
- Am I right about this?
- If yes, what to do?
- If no, why is this behaviour considered to be ok?
