I think it would be very helpful to see the close reason at once. The most frequent reasons are

  • off topic
  • duplicate question
  • migrated too

I often look at SQL questions in stackoverflow and there seems to be lots of duplicate questions and I would like to have a quick way to ignore the duplicates.

    Duplicates have the words Possible Duplicate, in bold, automatically inserted as the very first line of the question. Am I missing something?

  • Agree, when you look at the individual question, I refer to the lists like newest.

  • Are you referring to the title, similar to [Closed]?

  • Yes. 'Possible Duplicate' is there in the two lines of the text, but not the bold.

  • You could just ignore all closed questions, regardless of close reason...

  • this one is closed as duplicate meta.stackexchange.com/questions/72852/…, but the list only shows: Some way to put emphasis on code, please [closed] … Since the syntax highlighter knows from comments, you could recogn … as matching delimiters (using whatever comment syntax is active). …
