The general stance is link only answers should be down voted or flagged. If flagged, we would add a post notice and they would be subject to deletion.

Basically, for an answer like that, that do actually answer the question (but not with a lot of explanations) and that also already has gotten a comment about it lacking details, we as moderators should not take any further action on it.
