Are two questions, A and B, identical when question B is answered, without any discussion or instruction or explanation, as a tiny fraction within question A? In the question below, the overlap is approx 5%.
My title is "Super hero recognition" (Question B), whilst the other question is "How does the bounty system work?" (Question A).
I asked my question in order to understand how to reward superheroes who had assisted me in answering an important (to me) question. I had absolutely no idea that the bounty system could be used in this way.
Before asking my question, I searched along these lines: recognition, heroes, super-heroes, after-the-fact rewards, etc. The bounty system, from what I knew of it -- and by its very name, was created to encourage a-priori assistance. It never occurred to me to consider that vehicle.
From the number of upvotes on my question, I was not alone in this.
From the answers given in Question A "How the bounty system works", I still did not have all aspects of my question answered -- perhaps little more than half.
Am I wrong, or is there a tendency for mods to be a little too quick to press the flagged-as-identical button on their keyboards?
