Sometimes people ask questions like this:
Here is how I think it works. Here is the rule that says it works this way. Is my understanding correct?
When I answer questions like these, the only original part I get to add is:
Yes, your understanding is absolutely perfect for all the reasons you described. Here's an exceptional situation that almost never happens but might be relevant. Here's an example that's exactly like the one you already described in your question.
I want to strip the question down, moving the rules and the explanation to an answer. I'm not advocating for everyone to start aggressively picking questions apart. I'm just wondering if it's poor practice for me to do this.
If it were up to me, I would move the rules quote to an answer and change "Is this accurate?" into a real question (like the title). While I wait for feedback, I've compromised with little (CR 123.4) notations in the answer. But I'd rather just have the rule. The answer would then be complete and self-contained, and the question would just be a question.
A completed example:
Look at the revision history. I wrote the original question with an answer in the question itself, and the community improved it by relocating the answer. This is exactly the behavior I want to imitate.
Would the community consider this poor practice? Overly aggressive? A step towards improving clarity?
