Just curious how others would deal with this scenario.
I come across a question I want to answer. I begin putting together an answer. Writing the code, testing the code, collecting relevant links, screenshots etc. I post the answer only to see that someone else answered in that time. They beat me by 4 minutes. The answers are pretty much the same.
Do you delete your answer? I generally only delete answers if I find that they are incorrect, or I completely misunderstood the question. Is there harm in leaving it? Just curious as to how others handle this. I have no problem deleting the answer, just want to see if others had some input on the etiquette here.
This is the Q/A that triggered my thoughts on this. Clearly the other answerer is a bit peeved that I posted a similar answer.
