Within the Stackoverflow community (and probably others) it has become common place for a question to be marked as a duplicate if it has the same or similar answer to another question.
Do people agree with this? In my opinion, the two questions should be compared to ascertain whether it's a duplicate, not the answers.
The duplicate question flag seems to have become more like a signposting/reference flag. If someone has a question, they are highly unlikely to search for the answer, they will search for the question. Is this not therefore promoting the wrong behaviour?
