When a question starting with a blockquote gets closed as a dupe, the automatically inserted "Possible duplicate(s)" block and the original quote block end up as one.

I suggest adding an additional empty (or not) comment to the auto-insert:

> **Possible Duplicate:**  
> [“viewed 1 times”](https://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/20683/viewed-1-times)  

<!-- End of automatically inserted text -->

> 1 Questions

Fix spelling in user profile: "1 questions"

    +1 Nice catch. (asdlfkjsdfksadf 1 char under min length) – Jon Seigel Jan 25 '10 at 18:35
  • @Jon - just add a few code blocks with spaces to lengthen the comment without having to add visible characters. – Pollyanna Jan 25 '10 at 18:37

How about a nice separator

...like we used to do, before this was automatic...

  • separators are really, really ugly -- but mostly unnecessary. Learn to love the white space, like His High Holy Tufte intended – Jeff Atwood Jan 25 '10 at 19:04
