I asked a question about decorations in tikz herehere and received two answers that have nothing to do with decorations or tikz, but sidestep the problem using pstricks.

I appreciate the effort made by the answerers, but it doesn't answer the question, and at the same time the question vanishes from the list of unanswered questions, decreasing the chances to an on-topic answer. What can I do about this?

Of course, it may sound quite selfish to say "I want my question answered properly and nicely". But I think that this is a general problem, I've seen this effect in other questions, leaving questions with unsatisfying answers around undetected.

What to do about upvoted "wrong"/off-topic answers?
