I understand that there are a couple of reasons to turn my answer into a comment, but I also think there are stronger reasons to leave it as an answer, namely the fact that as an un-upvoted comment it will easily get buried and not get due attention and the fact that as an answer is gets a lot more exposure. I'm assuming no one disagrees that that link should have a decent exposure on that question.
Another reason is because this sort of answer is, in some instances, well received. I don't remember others at the moment, but here's one - which I personally consider to be one of the best.
What relative differences are there between my answer and that one?
Apparently I can undelete my answer. Not sure if I'll be able to, but at least the undelete button is available. Despite that, there's no point in undeleting if the community feels it should stay as a comment.
So I ask you to vote on the appropiate answers below wether you feel it should stay as a comment or it should be undeleted. Please don't downvote the voting answers.
If it happens to stay as a comment, then I urge you to at least upvote enough it enough for it not to be lost.
I just ran into this comment which contradicts what I've been told in this question and what (apparently) the community feels it should be done. Double standard much?
