Recently I was browsing through the "unanswered questions" section, and I found many questions which had good answeres - but those were given as comments. Some of them are very short, but still a valid and sometimes satisfying answer, so maybe the original commenter did not want to post a one-liner as answer.
Unfortunately, the question remains "open" and is more or less a click bait since people read the question, read the comments ant feel like there is no more to say without repeating the comments.
I see two options:
- ask the commentators to write their comment as answer - I'm unsure whether they would do it.
- Compile an answer from the comments given. This feels a bit like plagiarism (of course you should cite them)
What's your thoughts about this issue?
