In the past, people would either downvote or attempt to fix ‘link only’ answers.
How to handle these was even brought up in meta years ago: Should link-only answers be flagged?
Recently, I noticed a moderator has taken to deleting these answers: What is the science of drying/dehydrating meat? Biltong, jerky, etc
Because it was a deletion, other users can’t fix the answer, and I found out that answers deleted by moderators can’t be voted for in deletion by non-moderator users. (So we can then fix it)
Has the policy officially changed?
