In this question a new user came in late and added a "did you ever figure this out?" answer. The proper thing would have been for the user to comment on the original question, but since he's new and doesn't have any rep that option isn't available. Any suggestions for what to do in this case?
Tricky one, I've closed it since it was flagged as it's definitely detrimental to the site as a source of concise information, I left a comment which the user should be able to see even if others can not.
Yes this user could't comment, but it doesn't take much effort to earn the rep required. The system is presenting a road block in this case, but I think the cost of such is worth it since it teachers people about how the site works and how to use it effectively.
