I was one of the people who voted to close it as a duplicate, but I can't figure out for the life of me why some users would ask the exact same question twice, within a few hours of each other? (Now, this isn't the first time I came across something like this on Stack Overflow.) It's almost as though all they did was copy-and-paste the contents of their first question into the second question!
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
Because their first question did not get enough attention and they wanted to see if the second one gets better luck!
Maybe they wanted to see if they could get some points with it.
But with all due respect for people who do this:
Sometimes the answer may be simple: THEY ARE IDIOTS.
I think the most logical explanation is that they couldn't find it anymore; SO doesn't make it super obvious to find your own questions, add to that the fact that the user doesn't seem very smart and..
Sometimes asking the same basic quesion in a different way can lead to more/better answers.
