I ran into this edit:

Side note: (hopefully I don't get flak for this) Mint is not a distribution. It is built on top of Ubuntu. This is not a very good practice. Other projects are flavors of Ubuntu, but mint tries to be a new distribution built on top of it. This is prone to providing various bad experiences, and mint has a history of security issues due to the nature of the project. I suggest abandoning mint for a real distribution (one that is actually in charge of what is happening to it) Debian, Fedora, Arch, and Void are all great Linux distributions. Thank you for indulging me;)

and tried to leave a welcoming comment and the OP did edit their answer but it's till too opinionated in my humble opinion and doesn't have enough body to make it a real answer, so asking the more experienced users here:

What should I do about this answer?

  • Linux Mint is considered insecure? Is this true? – SurpriseDog Jul 26 '19 at 18:45
  • You've reached the site that talks about the site @Benjamin so here we talk about getting rid of bad opinions... ;-) – Fabby Jul 27 '19 at 6:06

Just downvote it. You feel this answer isn't useful, that's exactly what downvotes are for. It already has a delete vote and will probably be deleted soon since, as you point out, it doesn't give an answer to the question and instead only an opinion on a pretty much unrelated subject.

But the general answer to "what do I do if I consider an answer bad but not flaggable" is: downvote.

  • Downvoting hurts! Especially at that level of rep. But I'll bow to the wisdom of my betters! ;-) – Fabby May 10 '19 at 6:19
