A user posted an answer to a HNQ question which was quickly heavily downvoted. When it hit -7, the user deleted their answer then reposted it, resetting their downvotes, with only minimal changes. A moderator expressed that doing this is OK to counter "runaway downvotes". While I can understand doing this if the answer is completely reworked, the core of the answer was unchanged. In fact, it's almost word-for-word identical. Is this really acceptable in this situation? I strongly believe it is not.
Three sentences were changed. This should be done in an edit, in my opinion.
