I originally answered this question. He asked what was wrong with a very large command. I fixed the command in question. A little while later he asked another question with the answer to the previous question in it. He was told it wouldn't work in the comments. He then changed the question to something that could be accomplished. I answered the edited question. He then posed another question in the comments to my answer while at the same time editing his question to an entirely different question which more resembles the original question before the first edit. It seems he is updating his question each time he gets new information.
I commented on my answer to explain to him that it is not acceptable to edit a question like that and that my answer no longer appears to belong there.
I feel that almost wasn't good enough so I have a few questions on the general consensus of procedure in cases like this.
- Should I delete my answer that no longer answers the question and delete my original comments to the question that no longer make sense?
- Should I then leave another comment to the question that explains the problems with editing a question like that?
- When he edited his question the first time, which changed it drastically, should I not have answered it? Should it be flagged for some reason?
