It's kind of a bummer that this question was closed as a dupe for 4 reasons:

  1. The duplicate question was created as a snarky (yet funny) joke after the fact.
  2. The duplicate question has since been deleted.
  3. The question covers an actual unix shell usage question.
  4. The question had a pretty funny string of star wars quotes paraphrased to refer to unix shell usage.

Wait... Isn't that a SU question? –  Shog9 Aug 26 '10 at 6:49
That's no SU question. It's a space station. –  anthony Aug 26 '10 at 7:12
SU? I'm not going to SU, I've gotta get home, it's late, I'm in for it as it is! –  anthony Aug 26 '10 at 7:13

1 Answer 1

Why does a question that was closed as a dupe remain closed after the dupe is deleted?

Because nobody updates it. I don't think they are cross-referenced so that this update can be done automatically...just flag it for moderator attention with the hint that the linked question is now gone.

Also, the close process is a democratic process, so you have to ask the five close-voters why they have voted for it.

they probably voted to close it because they're trek fans! –  anthony Aug 26 '10 at 7:02
