If an answer is recognized as a duplicate, is there a policy about that?

• Can you clarify what exactly you're asking about duplicate answers? And do you mean word-for-word duplicate answers, or merely answers that are saying the same thing? – David Z Jul 6 '16 at 7:43
• On behalf of the internet: ???. That is, I'm completely confused by your question (and presumably others will be too). Can you clarify it a bit? If you have examples of what's bothering you, all the better. – Emilio Pisanty Jul 6 '16 at 10:22
• @DavidZ I mean merely answers that are saying the same thing. – lucas Jul 7 '16 at 2:13
• @EmilioPisanty I mean for example, you have answered a question and then I answer the same question, but my answer is a duplicate of yours. Is this correct? I don't want to be a reporter, but if you insist on to see examples, I can temporarily (I will delete that comment after a while) give you some examples. – lucas Jul 7 '16 at 2:17
