There have been a lot of one or two line answers (very brief) on the main site. Most of them, almost all of them IMO, only suggest one or two things to do and never explain why they would work. Though, such answers might be correct, but since sometimes they get upvoted and stick around longer, it is projecting an image that such short answers can be posted here.
I don't want to single anyone out, but this is an example. It suggests to do one thing that the OP would do, but there is no explanation about why it would work. It has been stated that answers here should not be mere suggestions and must explain how and/or why they will work.
Though, we have taken an approach to downvote and comment such answers and it's been doing a nice job. But still, there are more answers like this. And it gets worse when the question gets in HNQ and they start to get more and more upvotes.
On the Workplace SE (though I can't say about other ones), I have seen a lot of one-line answers getting numerous upvotes. And it seems that the similar behavior is now appearing on IPS as well. IIRC, answers on SE should explain why and how.
So, what should be done with such answers? Should we only downvote and comment (or a post notice by moderator) and move on, or we should take stricter action such as deletion?
