Recently I asked a question and one of the most voted answer is totally plagiarized from an answer to a similar question in Robotics StackExchange

I think it is against the site policy as the answer is being copied here without any any attribute.

As you point out, it is a copy-paste without attribution, which is a violation of the Stack Exchange rules.

So it should be flagged, using a custom moderator flag to explain the situation.

I have raised that flag.

    $\begingroup$ @VishnuJK Good! That's all we need to do. I flagged it after I saw your comment yesterday. It may take a while before the flag gets handled, because currently our only moderators are SE employees. This will get better after we have some more moderators (during/after public beta). $\endgroup$ – S.L. Barth - Reinstate Monica Aug 9 '16 at 15:21
