It sometimes happens that at question asked here already has an answer on MathOverflow. It has been suggested in the Meta.MSE here that a feature should be introduced to close such questions as duplicates, but apparently there was no sufficient support for such feature to come into existence. I, for one, agree that it would be very useful. In fact, I have my question here to which I recently found a full answer on MO. My first instinct was that the question is a duplicate, so I attempted using the "close" option, only to realise it wouldn't work when given a MO link.
What would be the right way to handle a question that is asked here and answered on MO? The question is mostly about the general case scenario, but I would also appreciate advice as to this specific case as well.
