What is the stackoverflow way of redirecting repetitive questions?
For the sake of learning and clarity I have edited my question and will now attempt answering my own question (after some time has passed and I have thought about it further):
Some posts get closed, some get voted up or down, some get linked to several new places.
But are there best practices to use when dealing with repetition?
After reviewing FAQ and searching I did not find a clear answer at the point in time of this original post.
