I am pretty sure that there must be already a topic about this, but on my search I only found topics about same answers from different users and same answers on different questions.
Sometimes I stumble across duplicate responses of a new user, which only differs in formatting or a formulation (so they won't be marked as duplicate answers automatically), maybe posted twice due to problems with the editor.
(How) should this be handled?
- Just ignore it?
- Leave a comment request the user to delete one of the answers?
- Additionally flag one of the answers? The problem here is due to later votes I could choose the wrong answer (I would have chosen the older one here).
