There have recently been some questions which have been closed for, I think, good reasons related to the likely intent of the person asking them inferred from the narrative pushed in the question itself.
Some of those questions, if asked with better intent, do have good and (again: I think) useful answers. And in particular I have an answer waiting for one of those closed questions which could be useful for later reference.
What should I do about this if I don't want to discard the answer? Is it appropriate to ask a question on the same subject simply for the purpose of providing an answer?
Note I'm not interested in the reputation: just that I think the answer is useful and would otherwise be lost.
