There is a very serious problem with adobe forums - many times a completely incorrect and inappropriate reply gets marked as 'correct answer' - even the original poster can not UNDO this mistake. SO many times some 'fanboi' i believe they are called, writes their *guess* as to why adobe has made some decision, or rather lack of, and manages to mark their apology/excuse as the answer. I have seen many occurrences of people wanting to improve a situation, point out better methods, discuss missing features, deal with clearly overlooked undealt-with mistakes, etc... but they end up having to deal with ignorant fanboi's who get all bent out of shape that the software isnt being called perfect all the time by everybody !! This really hinders progress and development of the software.
Can original posters be allowed to mark down the pointless comments ("it works for me", "my workaround only takes an hour"), or at least allow original poster to refuse "marked as answered" when it CLEARLY is not ?????????
(i can provide MANY examples in just the photoshop forum alone !! a top example is any discussion on MKV containers)
Post links here and a moderator can unmark answers as correct if necessary.

I disagree. While you may not like the replies, that doesn't make the "correct answers" a serious problem.
Just my 2 cents.
Can original posters be allowed to ... refuse "marked as answered" when it CLEARLY is not ?
...i can provide MANY examples...
The original poster should be able to mark or unmark an answer as correct. The exception is when the post is locked, which is likely to happen when the original poster fails to follow community guidelines to be kind and respectful and begins to insult other posters. An example can be found in your most recent post on the Photoshop forum.
