This question already has an answer here:
I was just reading this question, and it made me wonder about something.
Let's say you see a story-identification question. There's an accepted answer, which OP clearly has indicated is correct.
Now, suppose you can think of another story which also fits very well. Are you encouraged to answer? It answers the text in the question well, but you know that it will be wrong, from the point of view of the asker.
On the positive side, other people may find the question through Google, SE search, etc. And your answer may very well be the story they had in mind.
I personally am not sure if this is a good idea or not (although I did see some users doing it in the example linked to above), so I am asking the community.
How does the community view such answers?
