The question itself is a bit problematic, and has votes to close. But the user voted an answer the "best" answer. Then the answer was edited to say "Delete this answer now"


So, should the answer be deleted? Or just leave things alone?

I rolled back the answer to revision 1. Defacing answers is frowned upon.

I think it should still be deleted but that should be handled by the review queue.

I don't think that the accepted status of the answer should matter for voting to delete answers.


It should be deleted. It was very low quality before it was defaced and should have been deleted then. Just because a user accepted it does not make it fit for the site.
