I was looking through some questions today and stumbled upon this one: https://meta.askubuntu.com/questions/1109/what-is-flag-weight
The answer contains link rot so I searched for what to do in that situation and found this: What should we do about answers with Link Rot?
The suggested advice is to downvote and leave a comment. However I was still interested in the answer and I don't feel that this would get the question answered. I did some searching and it appears flag weight is no more so it doesn't matter but I still want to know what I should have done if I had the same question and the answer is corrupted by link rot. Should I flag the question? Ask the same question after flagging the other one for deletion? What is appropriate here?
