The question (c# NaN comparison) was one that I was about to answer, but it got closed as a duplicate before I had an opportunity. I can see all the people who closed the question, but how can I get their attention to review their decision to close the question? I think there would be a clear majority of the people who voted to close the question who would re-open the question if they read my comment, but is there anything leading them to do so? There should be some way to send them a message either manually or automatically.

You don't really need to get their attention, other people that come along can vote to reopen as well. The questions doesn't have to be reopened by the same people that closed it.
