This question already has an answer here:
I'm a relative high rep user (177k) on Stack Overflow. I am accustomed to being able to unilaterally close a question as a duplicate. But, today when I voted to close as a duplicate this question, the question did not close. It just registered one close vote.
Did a policy change? Or is there something different about that question that keeps it from being subject to the immediate closure as a duplicate?
