No. No no no no no no. Now I have a closed duplicate with no link to the duplicate. That is amazingly bad because:
- What if I want answers? Well...I know this is a dupe but I can't see where. It's not even in the dang revision history! (not that I should have to dig into the revision history). Both the banner and the removal of the banner seem to be jumping the gun, but the removal is even worse.
- What if I have an answer? Well crap, I can't answer this closed question or the mysterious alleged duplicate. $%^&.
- What if I want to evaluate whether it's a duplicate? I can't reasonably vote to reopen it if I don't know what it was closed as a duplicate of! Suddenly pile-on, foreknowledge or comments are the only way I can evaluate whether it was a dupe.
Do not remove the link to the duplicate until the post is reopened! At first I thought it was a feature, now I'm not sure. Either way, fixitfixitfixitfixitfixitfixit
