Re: (off-topic) self-plagiarism

Perhaps let the editors of the journal take action.  As a reviewer, one
is typically bound to reveal nothing about papers under review.  I have
certainly rejected papers with the comment, "This has already been
published x times before," providing all x citations.  (Although I've
never seen x > 2.)  That, and a separate communication to the journal's
editors, seems reasonable.
