A new user recently answered this question querying the syntax of Had they have gone to the same place, they would have talked to one another with...
what about the usage of "Have they had"?
(sic - that's the exact text)
Clearly that's not an answer, and I can't see much hope of it being successfully edited to meaningfully address the question. Anyway, it turned up in the review queue as first answer posted by a new user, where I realised I don't actually know what my preferred course of action should be.
In the event, I chose to flag it for moderator attention, citing "Not an Answer" (note that the clarification text for that option gives It should possibly be an edit, a comment, or another question as potential reasons for flagging).
In this particular case, I wouldn't be interested in seeing it posted as a separate question anyway (though the question: Do mods ever convert such posts into questions? comes to mind).
But my understanding is that as a general principle, high-rep users are supposed to use their enhanced voting powers to save mods from having to intervene.
So - did I do the right thing? Or should I have simply downvoted - in the expectation that others would do likewise, so that soon the system would automatically have offered us the option of deleting the post without bothering the mods?
