What is the best way forward with answers that are severely edited; to the point where they no longer hold their original intent? In specific, I'm referencing this post:
It's signaling the wrong thing to the community, but it's also saying the same thing as what YLearn posted (which has a positive vote talley). On the surface, it appears that YLearn is also saying that this is totally wrong, but after further inspection, the answer has totally backpedalled.
Would the best course of action be to delete the original answer and post a new one? Does that responsibility fall on the person posting, or the community (since it's conveying a confusing message)?
