When you go to flag a post as a duplicate it should show the "Related Questions" list that a poster gets after he has entered a title. What I'm thinking is there is something on top of that list that is an exact duplicate, but the OP didn't see it.

I agree with the sentiment, but I'm not convinced that the actual duplicate shows up in the "related questions" list often enough to make this worthwhile. I generally find duplicate questions by using Google, not the Related Questions dialog. –  Robert Harvey Apr 17 '11 at 18:29
    
@Robert Harvey♦ There should be something better than just a blank textbox. –  Rook Apr 17 '11 at 19:08
    
Flag for dupe? Flag? You shouldn't be mod-flagging dupes. You should stop worrying and love dupes. Unless it is a 100% exact dupe, of course; they usually need special attention. I'm sure you meant "Closing as duplicates, with suggestions." Right? –  Won't Apr 18 '11 at 11:57
    
@Will♦ yeah but posts are still going to be flagged as dupes, you should make the system more clean and easier to use. –  Rook Apr 18 '11 at 17:16
