This question was asked, answered, then largely edited. Now the original question wasn't great and got closed for reasons-I-can't-remember. But it was answered in good faith, and that good-faith answer now no longer addresses the (new) question.
If the answerer were to delete their answer my understanding is that it'll count "against" them in some user analyses. Since it seems a bit misdirected for the answerer to "take a hit" because of the question edit, should we be looking at deleting the question instead, and asking OP to re-ask their (hopefully clearer) question?
