I've seen the following Question/Answer behavior on a few posts now:
- user A posts a question
- user A posts an answer to that question immediately after posting the question
I'd initially thought the behavior might be a bug and flagged it as such, but it was declined with an explanatory link to a Stack Exchange blog post. It's an interesting read about trying to avoid flooding the site with the same newbie questions over and over.
However, I'm not sure if it exactly answers how we want to handle the situation I'd summarized above. Do we:
- accept such Q/A combos to populate the site with common questions?
- scream bloody murder if the questions are "trivial"?
- flag such Q/A combos -- and if so, with what flag?
