So why can't you delete duplicate questions with answers?
I asked a question and I researched as much as I could have. But, after I asked someone posted a question that had completely different wording to my question as a duplicate. I concede that the question was duplicate. But my issue is that now that it has answers and I have been down-voted for the duplicate question, I want the question deleted.
If I had of know it was a duplicate I would not have asked in the first place.
Why won't the answers in the duplicate question be added to the original question and the duplicate question deleted?
EDIT, in the comments the are arguments for duplicates and partial duplicates. If it is an exact duplicate, the answers should be added to the original question. If it is a partial duplicate, the question obviously adds new information and should not be marked a duplicate and allowed to stand as is.
Why can't duplicates be deleted by the asker?
