A few times I have seen people answering questions only to say that they are experiencing similar problems to the OP a recent example is Peter's answer to this question.

What action should I take when I see this, for example should I flag it for moderator attention, down vote it as not useful, or should I just ignore it? Or is this acceptable use of question space?
