I recently flagged an answer as "not an answer", and what came back was "declined - flags should not be used to indicate technical inaccuracies, or an altogether wrong answer." I found that surprising, so I had a look at the faq on flagging and, sure enough, an answer being altogether wrong is not listed as one of the (main) reasons for flagging as "not an answer". That leaves me at a loss to know what I should do when I come across an altogether wrong answer. Downvoting, even downvoting and leaving a comment, somehow doesn't seem strong enough. I don't want the answer downvoted; I want it deleted.
So: is there a consensus that one doesn't flag altogether wrong answers? And, if so, what is the recommended course of action when one comes across an altogether wrong answer?
