Edit to say: awkwardly the "poor" answer I so cruelly describe in this post has now been removed by one mechanism or another.. feeling bad now!
I get so frustrated (and have just been so, hence my digging this question up and posting here) about terrible quality answers that have just been rattled out in 30 seconds - but then arn't technically wrong...
This is my example from just now
How can I backup/export my APEX code classes and triggers?
I mean, it is a poor question (and duly commented/presumed downvoted by SDR) but I thought, I can give this person a bit of advice here, I already have my Force.com IDE open, I can talk him through it in 5 minutes, make a difference/help him out etc.etc. - but what do I see as I carefully put together my screenshots and walk throughs "One new answer on this post" - I click to load it and see the alternative answer, less than 3 lines long and not really helping the question asker at all, not even a link to a useful resource (sorry anmrk if you see this.. but it is a poor answer!) - it's technically correct; there is nothing wrong about it, but I'd like to think, side by side with my rich and proud answer (!!) it looks a bit, limited.
I take great pride in composing my answers, that is the whole point of the SFSE for me, but I think the SFSE is often one of the worst SO's for super-short or dismissive answers. I don't want to flag or downvote them (mostly because I'm a wimp) but is that what we should be doing? Would you say that answer should get a downvote?!
