I occasionally see questions that have been cross-posted. For example, this question was also posted on SU at approximately the same time.

In the past, I usually flag such cross-posts with a custom reason, but is this the best way to deal with it? Recently, I've been adding comments to the effect of…

Please don't cross post :) If you don't get the response desired from [xpost], request a moderator migrate it rather than reposting the question yourself.

How should cross posts be dealt with?

In general commenting and flagging are both valid options in these situations.
