I flagged this answer as not answering the question, since the proposed answer was
Put down the PS3 controller and connect the Xbox controller, it will not turn on the PS3.
despite the question being
When using my PS3 controller as a gamepad, how can I turn it off properly?
However, this flag was declined and I was given the message:
declined - flags should not be used to indicate technical inaccuracies, or an altogether wrong answer
This is not a "technically incorrect" answer from what I understand, this is just playing on the Sony vs. Microsoft console wars. How is this considered an answer? I do not believe that this answer attempts to solve the question in the slightest.
I am frustrated with this, because a similar flag was declined roughly a week ago, but the post was removed post-declination, due to at least one other accepted flag.
Here is the answer that I had flagged as not an answer and had declined. The question asked if a game was playable without a sound card, acknowledging that there would be no audio output, and the answer simply said:
Drivers allow your operating system to identify hardware connected to your PC. You need to install the sound driver, otherwise you will not be able to get any sound.
These declinations are making me less inclined to flag things that are clearly not answers to the questions they are supposed to be answering, as it appears that whoever is reviewing them is not actually reading the flagged posts.
