https://music.stackexchange.com/q/84207/45266 is the question at hand here.
Great question (it too is in response to another question, interestingly), and I took the time to offer my opinion in the form of an answer.
Another user answered as I was just finishing up my answer, and our answers had different content. I was snaked by about a minute, probably less than 60 seconds. I'm fine with that, since our answers are different, and I feel the merit of my answer remains unblemished by its tardiness. Plus, the other answerer had some great points too.
My problem is this:
Yep, you read that correctly. One minute after the answer was posted, OP had already accepted it.
Nobody on this planet can possibly convince me that in less than 60 seconds, OP decided that this answer was the best possible answer, better than all future answers, or in some way helped OP personally in a way that others could not outdo.
I've read Meta posts about when answers should be accepted, and I just can't believe that the other answer fits those descriptions. Sure, it's a good answer, and I even upvoted it. But the timing of the accept by OP is not appropriate, in my opinion.
I asked OP themself in the comments to consider waiting, and OP responded to the effect of playing it off as a joke, if I'm not misunderstanding OP here. I know OP is a new user, and already has some content here on this site that I'd expect from seasoned users here. The kind of user this site welcomes, as far as I can tell. I'd hate to lose them over this issue.
What can I do to try to reason with OP or improve my competition? Or am I being unreasonable here? What should I be doing? Site "case law"?
Also, let it be known that I'm not arguing that I deserve the accept, or that the other user does not. I've no problem with the accepted content, but I decry OP accepting it so soon.
