Should this post be considered an answer? Also, is there anything (besides what's already been requested) that we can ask the OP? Should the question be considered unclear?

@pomsky I believe the minimal, server, and old alternate CDs for Ubuntu use debian-installer. (If not, they use something that is very closely derived from debian-installer and is likely to be called debian-installer even if it's technically a fork.) So it being about debian-installer isn't a reason for it to be off-topic.

NAA (maybe spam but I'm not sure)
It's a very Windows-specific answer for an Ubuntu question, and it links to software in a way that looks promotional. I wasn't sure it was spam, but it's not an attempt to answer the question that was actually asked, so I flagged it a NAA and voted to delete it.
Somewhat similar situation here (which Smokey thinks is spam, apparently because that program has been spammed about before).
 
4:28 AM
Both gone now
 
Cool.
So, I'm interested in revisiting the matter of whether or not one of Why should users never use normal sudo to start graphical applications? and What is the difference between “gksudo nautilus” and “sudo nautilus”? should be closed as a duplicate of the other.
 
@EliahKagan I feel it is unclear and the answer is NaA, but perhaps we could interpret it as a very generic question with a verrry generic not very helpful answer :/
I think I'll cast a close vote
I have done but I don't feel very good about it
 
@EliahKagan I recall that no clear resolution occurred back in what I presume to have been September 2017 when I ended up just posting "related" comments on each question, linking them to each other.
@Zanna About the close vote on that question?
@Zanna I went ahead and flagged the answer NAA.
@Natty tp
 
@EliahKagan delete voted
@EliahKagan yes

@EliahKagan hope they will post a new question - looks like it could be useful
 
Indeed.

@Zanna I'm pleased that they posted a question.

Thanks.
 
Idk why the formatting broke there, I think I need a space after the ellipsis, but I don't wanna ping you again trying to fix it
 
@Zanna Feel free to ping me again! :)
(If you like.)
I am always curious to learn the details of the many subtly different dialects of Markdown used throughout Stack Exchange.
 
Haha thanks :) looks like it's too late now, but I guess most readers of this room can render markdowns mentally XD

@Zanna Sorry, I said 17.10 when I meant 19.10. I did that in AUGR too. Ugh.
 
4:41 PM
@EliahKagan no worries
 
^^^ Is the last sentence of that post a workaround?
(unrelated) Clearly not addressing the main thing being asked for in the question (to avoid the large size).

Spam in fact
@EliahKagan I think so. I feel the author of the post is not satisfied with this workaround and is looking for help rather than offering though. Still, I'm not sure what to do and will probably skip
 
8:31 PM
@EliahKagan I had my doubts, thanks a lot for clarifying.
Should this be reopened? This one's about pinning specific files to dock (e.g. spreadsheet) whereas the target is about pinning folders. Answers are related, but slightly different.
 
@pomsky Yeah, I think it should be reopened. You might want to comment. I think you can explain the issue better than I can (especially since you wrote both the top-voted answers). I've voted to reopen it.

9:04 PM
@EliahKagan Post already reported
 
Is this post an answer? I don't think the problem is the absence of instructions on how to install KDE. Does KDE do what the OP wants? Is the author of this answer trying to say it does?
@Kulfy Yeah, the change is as of 19.10.
 
@EliahKagan I feel more like a generalised "GNOME sucketh, KDE rulez" kinda comment, not about the specific question (maybe not, but OP didn't leave any justification). It's deleted now.
 
Is KDE more like Windows than GNOME is, these days?
 
9:22 PM
Probably, at least if you compare with older Windows versions (e.g. XP), not sure about newer Windows versions (haven't used in ages). For example GNOME got rid of taskbars with a list of open windows, an appliction-menu button (something like the Start button in Windows) etc..
 
9:40 PM
Is this a standalone answer? Looks like a comment on the other answer (disclaimer: by moi). OP also seems to have raised some points, but TBH I couldn't make out what they are trying to say.
 
I'm not sure, but I'm more comfortable letting possible NAA sit a while on meta than on the main site, even in the tag. Or, rather, I'm less comfortable removing things as NAA there. Unlike on the main site, on meta questions don't always have to be asking something and answers don't always have to be providing solutions, which doesn't mean NAA isn't a real thing on meta (it is, especially in ), but it does make me less comfortable doing moderation actions.
Is it reasonable to edit the insight in this comment into the answer? When no .inputrc exists in a user's home directory, they'll automatically use /etc/inputrc, so it's not actually the case that "If you have these in /etc/inputrc, the file needs to be included from ~/.inputrc".
 
@EliahKagan Yeah, for the same reason (i.e. being a meta post) I didn't take any action.
 
@Natty tp
But is it actually true that "The apt-get update command is run by the system regularly by default "? This seems to be drawn from that source which actually says "Therefore it basically calls the command `apt-get update" [emphasis mine].
Is there a good link (perhaps to a post on Ask Ubuntu, but it wouldn't have to be) for commenting on the many, many answers that recommend to run apt-get dist-upgrade or apt dist-upgrade (or even those things with -y!) without mentioning that they can remove packages?
On this answer I posted a link to that but I'm not sure it's best. Maybe something stating explicitly that you can just use apt upgrade these days?
