I have read the comments on this, but am not finding anything that really fits my question.
Sometime I write an answer that wouldn't fit well into a comment -- but the answer is so simple I would feel silly being awarded "points". I'm here to a) be helpful b) learn. Chasing points is not one of my goals, and I certainly don't need credit for solving a h.s. algebra problem.
Yet I occasionally answer such things, mainly because I think I can explain clearly.
This situation doesn't seem like a good fit for "community wiki", even if I can figure out how to put it there. Yet somehow I'd like to tell the point machine not to bother with that answer.
