I'm wondering if there are guidelines for being considerate while responding to mental health or similar appearing issues...
Specifically because I saw a 600+ word answer which was very confused. E.g. bringing up a complex, uncited problem on a pretty different system as an example, arguing that the fairly common issue in the question, was not actually caused by what the asker had thought. IMO 1) the answer was not relevant, 2) the user was affected by a mental health problem.
The answer was rendered just under the accepted answer. It had one upvote (dunno why). However it was sorted above two answers with 10 and 4 votes.
This was somewhat frustrating. If for some reason a bad answer is going to be "unfairly" favoured above more useful, higher ranked ones, the question would be improved by deleting it, downvoting to oblivion, or whatever. The posting did not fit SE's aims IMO.
In my asking, this came to mind. But I guess there's no point hoping a discussion like that could work half as well over here.
So the best option I think I have (if I decide to do anything), is "flag it and move on". I.e. get attention from moderators, suggesting the answer be deleted. Then a quorum can potentially leave feedback, make a decision, and act if appropriate. It might help avoid aggravating posters over a longer period - rather than downvoting with a comment to explain why.
Is that a good response?
