Several questions currently on the home pages are terrible. They have down votes and are "on hold"/closed with little hope of getting something of value there.
Yet, there are answers. Most are generic platitudes, answer part of the question, or are just plain bad in and of themselves. Clearly, we should be downvoting those too if we think they are bad. However, the down vote has a cost associated with it few are willing to pay. And a single upvote negates any few downvotes.
We are not a busy site so more content could be said to be welcome. However, rubbish content is arguably worst than no content.
Several other sites I am a member of would have removed said answers.
What should be our policy?
