Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The user Suresh Siva has 5 answers, each of them marked as answered and up-voted exactly once, all of them answers to questions asked by the user Suresh.

In fact in at least one of the answers is simply an exact copy-paste of the code from another users answer.

What should I do in such situations? Is it enough to mark one of the posts for moderator attention, or should it be posted here?

He's been continuing to do this systematically since this has been posted (he's at 9 accepted answers already). Seeing that his answers are not only accepted, but upvoted twice within minutes of being posted, there's a third account involved: Renya. See this question and this particularly blatant rip-off of someone else's answer. – ЯegDwight Oct 25 '10 at 10:44
It's a conspiracy! (S)He's been busy, as of now, 17 answers to questions (all accepted) from the "sock puppet" accounts with the combined question count, 17! Totally gaming the system. – Jeff Mercado Oct 26 '10 at 7:47

Mark for moderator attention will be enough. You can also mail the team.

Its not a user task to judge other users. That task belongs to the mods.

Replace 'user' with 'human' and 'moderator' with 'god' :-P – Lars Udengaard Oct 25 '10 at 9:31
I have seen moderators act like gods. But that's not the issue. In the case users had to be judged (because of their behaviour) its not a task that can be achieved with gaining rep. – Toon Krijthe Oct 25 '10 at 9:53
@Lars Udengaard: ...and your point is? Theology and mythology aside, who has the tools to do something about the situation (e.g. have access to moderator tools, can send an e-mail directly to the user in question, or in severe cases, can give time outs)? Not the users. – Piskvor Oct 26 '10 at 15:15

User Renya looks like his other sock puppet. He's been busy, got himself on the #5 spot in the user leagues.
