Recently we seem to be facing a larger than usual epidemic of users posting comments that are essentially short answers, or semi-answers.
These comments add nothing to the posts and I feel we should be doing something about them, mainly because comments are supposed to be used 'For adding value to the post'.
On top of this it has been agreed upon before, inclusive of mods, that comments are not supposed to be considered as permanent additions to these posts, which furthers the uselessness of giving answers as comments.
Examples of this behavior can be found:
You can say yes or no, completly your choice. But the company that does the best job checking the skills of those they hire are the least likely to hire this guy. outsourced my job 1: articles.latimes.com/2013/jan/17/business/… 2: edition.cnn.com/2013/01/17/business/us-outsource-job-china 3: abcnews.go.com/Business/
I think it's typically in larger organizations where the bureaucracy dictates that many people have to give the 'OK' to hire. (In other words, it takes all day because a user has to be interviewed by many people)
I don't want to make a whole answer out of this -- but lunch! You get to eat lunch with the candidate where they are (hopefully) more relaxed and less in "interview mode."
I could go on for a while but this seems like enough to get my point across.
What should we be doing about this?
Flagging to be removed? Ignoring? Upvoting?
Personally i am in favor of flagging for removal.
