Accept / Reject answers

This discussion is related to the Q&A addon.

I really like the idea behind this plugin and want to use it on my new forum, which is yet to go live. I noticed some potential problems with this plugin. Maybe I'm missing something, and you can correct me.

User A asks a question, and User B posts another related question on top of User A's question. Now before User A accepts / rejects User B's response, the admin splits the thread and moves User B's response to a new thread.

Now whenever User A accesses the forum, he keeps getting a pop-up notification "You've asked questions that now have answers. Make sure you accept/reject the answers.". But the answer is no longer available on the thread for User A to accept. Even if User A closes the popup, it keeps coming back very frequently.

In this situation, how would User A get rid of the pop-up?

Even otherwise, let's say User A has read the answer and is still verifying it, or trying to implement the solution given to him, the popup keeps nagging him.

Actually the second case is happening to me as I'm typing this message. I have an answer, but I need some time to verify it. As I'm typing this message, each time the draft is saved, this popup comes back.

Are my observations correct, or am I missing something here?
