This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

If it's an exact duplicate (word for word, which it is in this case) then the system has already flagged us. It's not bad if you do it, but chances are we already know. However, if one or two things are changed, then chances are we don't know. Feel free to flag us regardless. – casperOne Dec 17 '12 at 6:11

As the answers are exact duplicates, they are automatically flagged. What you can do is verify if any of the questions are duplicates, and flag/vote to close them.

Generally speaking, a duplicate answer could mean the questions are duplicates. Voting to close (or flagging, if you don't have the reputation to vote to close) helps the moderators more than flagging duplicated answer, especially in this case.
