I have a question about my Cross Validated post: Statistics: what kind of test to use to test this hypothesis?
A member commented on my question in detail, and that comment did answer my question.
I proposed he submit it as an answer so that I can mark it as such and close the topic while giving credit to him.
He said he didn't want to, so I submitted an answer where I said that the answer to my question is in that person's comment.
As I can't mark my own answer as the answer until 1 day passes, I went away to do other things only to come back to see that answer deleted by a mod saying "This does not provide an answer to the question. To critique or request clarification from an author, leave a comment below their post." But I AM the author...
What do I do? Submit the same answer again? Flag the mod's comment which I feel would do nothing? Leave the question forever in the open state?
