Stack Exchange network consists of 181 Q&A communities including Stack Overflow, the largest, most trusted online community for developers to learn, share their knowledge, and build their careers.
Q&A for work
Connect and share knowledge within a single location that is structured and easy to search.
Sometimes folks (myself included) answer a question with what should have been a comment. Is there a way to move the inappropriate answer to a comment rather than delete/add it?
Moderators have the ability convert answers to comments. So for now if you flag the comment as needing moderator attention the moderators can convert it to a comment.
You could flag it for a moderator and ask them to do it.
