Today, I noticed that the question Where did the energy released due to gravitational binding energy of the Earth go? was posted word for word just over an hour earlier on Physics.SE here, where two answers were provided and one accepted.

What should we do in this case where the question is blatantly cross-posted?


1 Answer 1


I think this has been addressed thoroughly in Is cross-posting a question on multiple Stack Exchange sites permitted if the question is on-topic for each site? Personally, I would like the question closed so that the questioner decides carefully what the best site is.

    $\begingroup$ How about cross posting across different sites i.e. on a non stack exchange site and stack exchange site ? $\endgroup$
