In a recent question there were many answers that just consisted of links to packages. The answers, while potentially useful to the OP, contained no discussion about how these packages could be used to address the specific problem given in the body of the question.1
So my questions are:
- When is it acceptable to post an answer that consists primarily of links?
- When are these link dumps better as comments?
- I understand that link dumps can sometimes be useful and appropriate. In these cases, how are they best presented?
1 However, all of the packages did address the title of the question, which did not quite reflect the body of the question.
