Recently I've started a Bounty, which is about to end very soon (in less than 23 hours, to be precise). And just a few minutes ago, I received this E-Mail:
Reminder: Your Bounty Is Ending Soon!
Your bounty on the question …
… ends in 23 hours.
Don't forget to review the answers and award your bounty by clicking the bounty indicator to the left of each answer. If you don't award your bounty, the highest scored answer (with a minimum of 2 score) provided after your bounty started may be automatically awarded half the bounty amount!
The actual important part is bold. The problem is, that the highest voted answer doesn't answer the question at all, infact, it's merely a comment! How is this Bounty system in any way fair?
