I recently posted a question to SuperUser. It was quickly flagged as a duplicate and I was sent a link to the 'same' question (which contained good info). Here is my question:
Given that the link to the 'already asked' question did not come up in my original search for the info, what is next-step protocol?
Do I leave my flagged question, that now includes the link to the
original, such that depending on how a person enters their search
criteria they might get a hit on my question during future searches, due to its wording?
Or do I simply delete my duplicate and the next person in my situation gets the same response from a moderator, and the dance is the same?
The reason I'm asking is because of this message:
There are only two choices here: "Edit Question" or "Delete Question". My impression, possibly wrong, was if I had not misstated anything, I needed to delete the question.
