This newly-asked question is clearly a duplicate of this older one, but I think it's got better answers. What's the correct way of dealing with this?

The best route is exactly what you have done - post in here, or flag to moderators. We'll get a good look and take one of 3 actions:

  • leave as is (default, especially if the old answers are ok) - possibly add a link to point from the old one to the new
  • change the dupe direction (if the answers on the new question are much better)
  • merge (if there are good answers on both sides)

In this case it appears a merge is likely to be the best bet as there are a few good answers on each.
