TL;DR if you don't want background information: Should we allow answers which only provide a single experimental measurement to remain posted as answers?
The other day, an old question What is the temperature of the clear night sky from the surface of Earth?, was bumped by an answer which contained a single measurement, and minimal information about the controls or procedure used to take the measurement.
This is the second such answer on the question, the first of which was posted in 2014, and I believe was +2 before the question was bumped by the new answer. This would explain why a second user found it appropriate to post a similar answer with their own measurements.
I assumed this was inherently off topic, but Kyle Kanos mentioned in Chat that his review got quickly declined by users in the review queue. I decided to give it a moderator flag, because I felt such answers blatantly did not fit on the site. My flag read for each answer read:
"Single point experimental data with minimal details of setup or reasoning for results doesn't meet quality standards for answers on this site."
which were declined for the reason:
"flags should not be used to indicate technical inaccuracies, or an altogether wrong answer"
I thought my flag was quite clear that I was not trying to point out a technical inaccuracy, or an incorrect answer, but it seems that is not the case. Because of this, I would like to get some sort of community consensus on this going forward.
I will be posting my own answer, because I have thoughts on how this should be, and shoehorning them into my question more than I already have doesn't seem fair.
