For context, I'm brand new to closed post review, hence asking for advice.
See this exchange about an old post.
The answerer provided an answer with no definition and links only.
A word for stripping someone of something hard-earned
As it appeared in the review queue, for me, the case seemed clear, I just clicked "delete for link only answer" with the generic message.
He's got a relatively high rep and seem to think that I've been too harsh. From what I understand his point of view seems to be that because the question was weak to begin with his answer had the right to be weak as well.
Three ways of asking the same question:
- Is there a policy on a weak question that warrant a weak answer?
- Was the answer weak or did I misinterpret the rules?
- Should I have kept open this answer?
