Yes, per the recommendation there was a split. Normally, except for deletions or refund/PAQs, I'll usually take the recommendation unless there's a compelling reason not to. We try to reward the Experts who participate in the absence of information from the Asker; the good part of a force-accepted answer is that it's virtually always an A grade.

The "system", such as it is, is that an Expert who is helping clean up a Topic Area (and you're quite welcome to help us -- if you want more information, just let me know) will go through the oldest questions and will leave a post saying, essentially, "I'm recommending thus and such happen in this question, and a Mod will do that unless someone has a better idea within the next seven days." A week after posting that message, the Expert will leave a list of the questions, along with the recommendation, in the CS topic area. One of the Moderators will then go through the list and perform the necessary administrative functions to close the question. I've given exactly two grades that weren't As in the thousands of questions I've closed since becoming a Mod -- and those were very special circumstances -- because part of the process is that we give the grade at the same time we force-accept a comment as an answer.

lexx,

I recommended a split because there is no indication from the user whether they wanted to break out all the way or one level up.  It would be better if the user came back and did the accept, but both _parent and _top could have been the correct solution, and both comments add soemthing to the PAQ.

Old?  You should see the stuff I'm cleaning up in JavaScript.  Right now I'm up to November of 2000...That's old.  

But in dinosaur years it is just a clock tick. ;^)
