There is an ongoing debate on partial answers posted in comments here, and it would be helpful to the community to have example responses when a user posts an answer that should be a comment or a comment that should be an answer.
While we continue this debate on the gray area in between clear cases, it is also healthy to identify some agreed upon responses to these situations. Above all, it is critical that we build a welcoming and inclusive community. At the least, we want to adhere to the Stack Exchange Code Of Conduct "Be Nice! Policy" (see here), but I think we can be 'nicer'?

What are some suggested responses to situations where users post comments that should be rephrased as answers, or where they post answers that are more appropriate as comments? (keep within 600 character limit of comments!)
