In the past two days I've come across two instances of exact duplicate answers that unregistered 1-rep users evidently copied from existing answers and posted as new answers.
The two examples I've encountered involve an answer posted 19 hours ago by "Mikala" to "choice words" meaning, which is identical to a one-paragraph answer posted by Kate on March 6, 2016, and an answer posted on April 20 by "deirdre brownlow" to Is the spelling fundraising, fund-raising or fund raising? that copies the final paragraph of an answer that I posted on November 22, 2016. (In this case, however, "deirdre brownlow" added the words "This seems clear:" as a preface to the paragraph copied from my answer.)
A diligent moderator has already deleted the "Mikala" answer, and I expect that the "deirdre brownlow" answer will soon vanish as well—but I wonder whether this is (1) the tip of an iceberg of prank duplicates that has recently hove into the EL&U shipping lanes, or (2) an ongoing problem that I simply didn't notice until yesterday, or (3) a very rare phenomenon that happened to affect two question that I had participated in answering.
Has anyone else noticed similar instances in recent days? Is this something that review queue reviewers should be watching for when vetting first answers from unregistered 1-rep posters?
