Some popular good-quality questions on Health.SE have two liners as answers which go something like:
I did it and I’m fine
This is not a problem. I’ve never encountered anyone that had these symptoms
or the opposite:
My mother had the cold too and it turned out she suffered from xyloduseroviyustexicouaeasis.
The problem is that the site Health.SE doesn’t work that way. You can’t just give case studies of people as an answer. These answers are “wrong” on Health.SE.
These answers do attempt to answer the question (hence I’m unsure whether to flag them as "not an answer"). Usually, I’d wait for seven downvotes and let the system handle this. However, on a small beta site seven downvotes take forever (and the question will soon disappear from the active-feed).
In the past, I’ve assembled the Avengers1 (a bunch of helpful people on Tavern on Meta) and basically downvoted such answers into oblivion as a group action.
That doesn’t feel right either. What is the recommended procedure in such cases?
1: Or the Justice League, depending on your flavour
