Yesterday, I came across an answer from a new user that caught my attention not because of its quality (or lack thereof), but because it consisted of 15 questions to the OP and 1 suggestion.
I suggested the user take those questions to chat, discuss them with the OP, and provide an answer. I also flagged the question as not-an-answer. Apparently, however, the community consensus is that an answer comprised of questions to the OP is a perfectly valid answer.
For formal reference, what position and action should we take concerning answers that contain more requests for clarification from the OP than statements that provide a solution to the question? Alternatively, do a long series of requests for clarification provide a solution to a question?
