This question already has an answer here:

Concrete example:

Despite almost identical titles (and the same user task -- send email) the questions are about different issues underneath: the first question might be about shadowing Python stdlib module due to filename conflict. The second -- about ssl error.

Should such questions be merged (one closed as a duplicate of another) or should they be kept separate?

Keep them seperate IMO –  Cole Johnson Dec 24 '13 at 4:22
If the issues are different, the titles should be too. –  Josh Caswell Dec 24 '13 at 20:02

  • if issues are different enough and they make sense as different questions then they should be separate questions
  • titles should be changed to reflect the actual questions
