I recently discovered that there are a lot of answers out there that just contain a link and some variation of the text "this is a duplicate". A lot can be found with the query
is:answer body:"duplicate" url:"*stackoverflow.com/*" (currently 2,957 hits!).
I've added the query to the list of searches to use for finding answers that should be flagged, but I think this deserves some extra attention since there are so many of these, so that's why I'm making this post.
While a lot of these are probably from before closing as duplicates was supported, many are new also. I think leaving these around sets a bad precedent. We have a system in place to deal with duplicates, and we should be clear that people should use this instead of leaving non-answers.
So I call upon your aid to help me get these answers deleted, converted to comments or their corresponding questions closed. It's probably best to look these over by hand and use flags, but I'm a bit concerned about spamming the flag queue too much. Thoughts?
