This question and this question are not really duplicates, however they are similar. I gave a pretty good answer to one, but that answer actually fits even better on the other question. Is it bad form to copy my answer completely over from one to the other?

    Somehow I'd say that if an answer is exactly the same, chances are high that the two questions are dupes. If not, why not change the new answer ever so slightly that it accords with what you perceive as differences? (Or the other way around, as you seem to imply with "better fit") – LangLangC May 28 at 16:36

I think I was probably overthinking it. Next time I'm in such a situation I'll blockquote most of the overlap with a link like any other source and add a bit to make sure my answer addresses any minute differences between the questions.
