I'm not sure if it is just me, but lastly I have noticed the same "copy and paste" answer for a couple of different questions given by a particular user.

For me, the answer is kind of vague and really doesn't explain much. Also, for me, it defeats the purpose of the community if you going to get some "generic" answer

Anyways, I was just wondering if this is a good reason to flag it or if there is a policy in place for stopping these copy and paste answers

Sure, it's a good reason to flag the answer as low-quality answer or in need of moderator intervention based on the type of answer.

enter image description here

Once Moderators received your flag, we will take the correct action to approve or reject this flag based on the situation.

You can also raise a flag for the question itself in case it was duplicated and the same answer will solve the current OP issue.
