Occasionally there are answers that are really comments, so there should be a possibility to change them to comments. It is already possible to change comments to answers.

Edit: Now that it's possible to change answers to comments, it would be useful for high karma people to have access to both these operations for other people. (Currently only the people themselves and moderators are allowed to do this).

note that any comments on the answer should be comments on the question instead

i guess for now, we can ask to the original user to post a comment with the same and remove the answer

We need to improve as a community on this. Myself included. Comments should be comments.

The only possibility right now is to delete the answer, but it most cases it would be not ok because it is a valuable comment. If the problem is the votes this answer has, at least make it possible for answers that do not have any votes (or something similar).

@Neo if it's valuable comment, we can still delete and redo it in comments, i've done so before... but converting it would be easier... in any case, askbot is opensource, you can fix it yourself upstream :-)
