I gave a bad answer. It was bad because:
- it had a flame-bait quote
- it was mostly off-topic
- it originally didn't even answer the actual question (now it kinda does)
My question is, how bad is this answer? Is it bad enough that it should be deleted, or should it just be downvoted?
A point in favor of deletion is that the answer itself may be flame-bait; it's drawn a few unhappy comments (which seem to have been deleted).
I just want to emphasize that the answer was actually intended to be helpful, and not rude or offensive. I sincerely apologize that it missed its mark.
