I'm wondering why there is so much work to close duplicate questions.
We can see that the Stackexchange concept allows users from all around the world to find answers very efficiently.
Wouldn't it be better to have the maximum number of answers even for the same question as each one is slightly different. The more there are answers the more a user can find his one.
Are we limited in disk space or something ?
Imagine a question badly asked one day then the same well asked later that is easier to find from google, which one is supposed to be closed as duplicate ?
