If you ask a question which is the result of a misreading, typo or some other triviality and someone posts an answer, what is the best course of action?
If the help came in the form of a comment I would just delete the question. But because there is now an accepted answer I've just voted to close my question instead. The system warns me that deleting questions with answers is bad. Does the answerer lose their rep if the question is deleted? Are there any other good reasons why it would be bad in this situation?
