I just saw this and edited it to this to allow the next user in the review queue to see that it really is an answer, but I'm fearing that the answer (though off-topic as custom kernel) might be lost to GNU herd mentality.

How do I protect an answer?

    so.. basically you want to impose your opinion on the reviewers and stop it from being deleted?

  • :D Not really, but there is a germ of truth in your opinion... I've upvoted the A in the mean time and favourited the question. I just felt sad for the low rep user that his first answer will be deleted and we might turn him away from here. @Seth

  • Then I guess I'm a little unclear on what your post is about... Sure, I don't want users to leave. Hence you editing and commenting! FWIW it left the review queue and now that its score >-1 it can't be deleted except by a moderator.

    So, I guess, the best way to "protect" an answer is to do just what you did!

What??? You want to protect a single answer?

That would be dictatorially imposing your opinion on the reviewers and stop it from being reviewed!

If the answer is that good, edit it, improve the grammar, spelling and readability and upvote it instead!
