  • I'm not a mod not a 10k'er so I can't see it, but was the answer a link only one? Those usually tend to be removed, specially if they go through the Low Quality Posts. – Dan Jun 15 '15 at 13:18
  • It would of ended up in the late posts queue or somethin, and was probably much more noticeable as u posted it more than twice. If you post one answer, and link from the other questions in comments thats better than(/more preferred/not as noticeable as) 3 copy n paste answers – Wilf Jun 18 '15 at 19:18

You have used the same answer repeatedly. This is regarded as "noise" on Ask Ubuntu.

You've posted the same answer to 2 different questions, is the reason for deletion.

How to transfer files between Ubuntu and Windows?

How do I set up file sharing between two Ubuntu laptops on my wireless network?

  • I request moderators to have an eye on here and here and check user One Zero's answers. Rules must be the same for all users, high reputed or low. Atleast he could have merged that into a single answer. – Anonymous Platypus Jun 24 '15 at 10:17
  • Why is it noise if it correctly answers the question? You've just deleted one of my answers for this reason, too. Sure, it's the same answer, but it's the right answer to both questions. – Timothy Zorn Dec 18 '16 at 10:11
  • @TimothyZorn Then it should be marked as duplicate. – Mitch Dec 18 '16 at 10:20
  • Ok, I've marked the question as a duplicate. Is there a way to merge the two questions and their answers? – Timothy Zorn Dec 18 '16 at 10:22
