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

I've noticed a few questions lately where OP will post on SO, then be told in a comment that it's better suited to a sister site. On the odd occasion, OP will then cross-post on said sister site but not make any note of this on the original question. I can find examples if necessary.

It shouldn't be difficult to identify cross-posting. The question is often identical, and even if not it is posted by the same user in quick succession.

How about posting a link in the questions to direct readers to the other cross-posts?

I think it's those comments that are evil. – Arjan Dec 19 '10 at 23:08
