Why can one who answers a question mark it as "accepted"?

Trying to understand why someone who offers an answer to a question can then mark it as "answered" whether or not it is?

I asked a question about the availability of CAD images for Victron components. A person trying to be helpful directed me to a different answer, which talked about 3D CAD images. I then realized my question wasn't clear as I was seeking images to use with 2D CAD software. I replied to him in the original thread clarifying that while I appreciated his response, I was seeking something different.

Since then, he has twice marked my question "answered", even though it has not been. Since I"m still hoping someone can help me with 2D CAD images, I'd rather it wasn't pulled from the unanswered list.

Hi @Oceanwolfe

You should be able to remove/unaccept it.

Almost everyone has access to accept answers, and it’s helpful because many question askers do not return to mark them as accepted even when the answers are correct.

I have unaccepted it...twice so far.

I do understand the problem with not getting answers accepted. It wasn't obvious to me for quite a while that this was something needing done.
