Are answers whose sole purpose seems to be the propagation of a particular sect on topic here?

Must answers comply with the tags associated to the question? and other questions

Tagging is to help find and sort questions - they should apply to the context of the question, questions themselves still have to have all the context in them. So, if I tag a question virgin-mary ...

Deal with assumptions being made by accepted answers

Are 'extra information' answers encouraged here?

Flagging a low quality late answers on questions that would be closed if asked currently

I think the approach I'd recommend is similar to yours, but perhaps my reasoning will be helpful to share. In general, we have the same problems with new-user answers on off-topic questions as we do ...

Should an answer be deleted because most readers won't like it?

Should an answer be deleted because most readers won't like it? The short answer is no. But your answer does not really address the question being asked. That is why it was deleted. Your answer to the ...

What are the rules (if any) concerning answering questions which are wider than the actual title of the question?
