My query covers 2 related scenarios:
1) The original question is language specific
2) The original question is language agnostic
In the first case, some responders introduce a 2nd language into the post by way of an answer. While I appreciate they're trying to help, I believe that it should be possible to flag this as off topic.
In the second case, some responders introduce a specific language into the post by way of an answer. Again, I believe they're trying to help, but again, it should be possible to flag this as off topic.
I'm more than happy to be corrected on this but I haven't seen a single question ever where the scenarios outlined above resulted in an accepted answer or even a well received one.
Is there any mileage in adding a feature to handle this is or should we just let the usual voting process take its course?
Perhaps as a half way house we allow something in between a comment and answer which could gain credit but not clutter up the question?
