This is in reference to this post.
I gave my best efforts in trying to answer the OP's question. Since I have answered I was very excited to check whether there are more interesting answers which actually resolve OP's query or if OP has something to say/comment on my answer like if OP doesn't get something, likes something or wants something more, etc.
For some reasons unknown and left for me to wonder, the OP sees it fit to engage with only 1 of the users who have posted an answer. In general, this would have been fine if I answered a lot of time after the question was posted or if there were already many answers to that question. Even if it were the case that the standards while answering the question are TOO high and other simpler solutions are available, with a bit of uneasiness I might have swallowed it. Alteast, these were not the case.
This seems a bit de-motivating or rather a BIG bummer and destroys the fun of (putting efforts in) writing an answer. To me it seems strange, to comment to the OP to engage with other users too; or to simply edit one's answer based on OP's chat with some other user; or to just ignore the fact that I ever even wrote an answer.
What should one do in such scenarios? Should I (have) take(n) one of the above "strange" steps?
Also, in the above mentioned post, the OP had put their problem relatively poorly and took at least 5 reads to decode something they are asking and I tried to answer in simplest of the terms. Also, after my post, mathmajor updated their answer with whom the OP is engaging. Now, I could make an edit based on the OP's chat with another user but that doesn't seem fit to me. After all, what's the use when maybe the user is anyways ignoring your answer :-\ .
