Let's suppose I have posted an answer A to a question Q using some texts T as reference. Now, some hours later, another user posts another answer B to the same question Q using exactly the same texts T as reference and arrived at the same conclusion of A.

Does that make the answer B flag-able as not an answer? I remember reading something like that earlier but unable to locate that post now.

    B sounds duplicate answer if it's copying A and it can be deleted.

  • That means if a portion of an answer is suffering from the same issue, that portion has to be removed? @Pandya

    If this was posted in connection to your comments here, then you are misrepresenting facts and accusing users of "stealing" your references. 'a portion of an answer is suffering from the same issue, that portion has to be removed' - if this is your main issue, it needs to be part of the question itself. Commented Aug 11, 2020 at 16:38
  • "then you are misrepresenting facts and accusing users of "stealing" your references" --- I am not doing any of these as I have not mentioned about any particular post in my question here. " it needs to be part of the question itself" -- let me decide what should be part of one my questions.
