Last week I asked this question on what the current policy is on comment-answered questions.
I thought I had reached an understanding. The top answers expressed that if someone sees this, they should post an answer directly addressing the question, even if the answer was short enough to post in comments.
However, I did so under this question and it got reported for being a low-quality post. This is really frustrating.
Maybe I misunderstood the answers of my original question, in which case I would like to understand what I missed about the policy. On the other hand, if there is a stark division among Math SE members on how to address this issue, a new user posting a meta post about is is NOT going to solve the issue and something greater must be done. I think this problem has gone on far too long to be left unresolved...
