Do not redirect to the original question on duplicate questions

A fairer / more logical way, to handle 'Duplicate Questions'

Merely, place a very large and very noticeable banner at the top of the 'Duplicate Questions', a banner stating that it is a duplicate, but do not cause any hyperlinks to re-direct to the original 'duplicated' question, do not affect any hyperlinks.


  • The 'banner' in my question above, could start with a message asking visitors/users to click on a hyperlink to the original question .
  • Many visitors don't have accounts, during more than 99% of my visits to this site I am not logged in, I think that may be common for many users with accounts on this site .
