After answering this question, I noticed the user posted the same question 3 times in a row today. Now I kinda wish I didn't answer at all, because it feels like cheating to me. You have the issue of multiple answers that are the same, etc...

The questions are:

  1. Python 3 palindrome checker
  2. implement unit test cases for python palindrome
  3. My third post about Python 3 palindromes

Thus:

  • What can I do when something like this happens?
  • More specifically, what can be done to prevent this kind of situation?
  • Should I just flag and let a moderator handle it? What do I even flag it as?

As per site policy, follow-up questions are allowed, and even encouraged. However, doing so without adequate signposts is, in my opinion, rude.

  • The old question should have a comment indicating that a follow-up question exists, so that people don't waste time reviewing obsolete code.
  • The new question should link back to the old question, and it should explain what has changed, and why you are seeking another review.

If a user is flooding Code Review with questions about the same or identical code, you can vote/flag to close them as duplicates, or downvote.

    \$\begingroup\$ @Ludisposed I suspect that the third question was posted in an attempt to circumvent the closing of the second one as "Unclear". In any case, my advice is the same: downvote, or vote to close. \$\endgroup\$ – 200_success Oct 30 '17 at 17:08
