@Scimonster I thought we decided that a mi.y link was OK. This is not to say, of course, that the other link shouldn't be expanded on :) – Shokhet 6 hours ago
@Shokhet, 1) 2 upvotes doesn't necessarily imply consensus. 2) That "OK," such as it is, is for duplicate answers, while this is a link to a related, non-identical question. To make this an answer to this question, there has to be more fleshing out of what's there and how it applies here, IMO. – Isaac Moses 4 hours ago

The page Shokhet linked says:
I'd add that if the questions are actually duplicates in your eyes but for some reason haven't been designated as such, you can probably answer the later one with "See my answer to a very similar question." Usually, we don't like answers that are just a reference, but within the site seems OK.
Now, do we agree with this position that internal MY link-only answers are OK?
