Truth and helpfulness versus user's wishes on use of publicly posted information.
Hi, long story, but someone answered my question I thought was a duplicate (and had stated so), but turns out not to be. And so they deleted their post. But it is the a correct solution for another answer (which actually has a factually incorrect answer marked as accepted).
I asked the user to post it as the correct answer on the other question. They declined.
Question: is the utility and value of a correct answer more important than the wishes of not reposting what I believe is perfectly legal public information?
EDIT1: The answer is correct for another question. My question is, should I post to it to help that other person. ..I do care about the users wishes, but I believe helping another person with a valid question is more important. Its a value judgement. And I am asking the community before taking any action, unlike this user who changed the title of my post to something not helpful. ..Personally, I think it is ironic this user is okay with editing another users title to a question that fit his answer, but not me posting his answer where it should go if he wont.
