Time and again have I seen questions being posted here that have been posted before by the same users.
I've reported it; then a few days later a question is posted that is almost totally alike (more often than not from the same user) and I google because I was sure that I read the same question a few days earlier ...and lo and behold, that question has been asked, and been reported by me, but hasn't been removed.
Have you guys also reported duplicate questions (often multi-duplicate questions) ...and has every anything been done about it?

I actually don't know where the reports go... I assume the admins. But anyway if a super moderator see's a duplicate they can remove it for that reason. But whenever we remove questions, admins have the final say anyway in whether its put back up or removed.
I imagine like anything that receives reports or complaints, its jammed up and probably has one too many unnecessary reports helping this jam. So depending on where these reports are going and how many individuals are handling them all it might take awhile for your report to be seen and then looked into.
The next time you see this happening you could try to send a message with a link to the question to a super mod (or admin but like the reports I am assuming they have a lot of messages and cannot say for sure how often those are gone through). If its honestly duplicating or some other break in the TOS it can be removed.1
