Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

On questions like this there are many answers that are only slight deviations of each other. It would be great if there was a way to close, delete or otherwise disable an answer that the community deems an exact duplicate of another. The closed answer could later be edited by the poster at which point it would "come alive" again, in case they believed their answer wasn't a duplicate they could clarify as needed.

This has been discussed before. The community will vote up what is perceived to be the best answer. So the duplicates will filter down in time.
