[R]ather than editing in the banner, it's generated as-needed and displayed separately above the question
I'm not able to find much recent information about this, so I'm just wondering what happens if I remove the banner. Does it make a "real" duplicate banner appear? Will it still be closed as a duplicate?
Should I remove it or is there some benefit to keeping it there?
