No, we don't reap nodes due to a question having been answered.

I personally believe that you misunderstood, which possibility bothers me because the OP easily may as well. I was talking about reaping a node due to the author wanting it to be reaped - which something like "DISREGARD POST" strongly suggests me. Specifically in the second part of my reply I suggested the use of a "SOLVED" tag as opposite to consideration. I hope it's clearer now.

    [I think] you misunderstood [...] I was talking about reaping a node due to the author wanting it to be reaped

    No, I didn't misunderstand. I preferred to focus on the author's (theorized) motivation since the source of the request matters very little; the reason for the request is what matters. And the theorized reason (that the question has been answered) seems quite inappropriate; it is certainly against site policy.

    For more about why "I want my node reaped" is not a valid reason for reaping a node, see (tye)Re: why a nodelet can be kept against author wish?. Win did an admirable job of dealing with the situation, IMHO.
