Thanks to the responses from users in one of my recent meta question, I have discovered that having questions flagged as duplicates isn't always a bad thing. It's in fact a good way of adding new keywords and diagnostic information to potentially make a problem easier to find.
Ironically, however, my most recent question to date (Biblatex and Beamer and IEEE problems) was a perfect example of a duplicate solution so narrowly described in the original question, that it never appeared in my searches, so rather than delete it, I linked it to the duplicate, and voted to close. Unfortunately, in the confirming votes to close it, some bad advice was offered with someone adding a link to a 100% unrelated question.
Now because I can't edit this, I am debating whether I should delete the question because the addition of this link reduces the usefulness of this duplicate as a way of accepting more keywords to direct a future user to the solution they need.
