For example: http://ask.libreoffice.org/question/1388/does-anywone-have-problems-with-libo-35and-owa/

It would be great if we could fold duplicate questions together so that we would only see one of them in searches, etc..

Update 2: We all like @Pedro's answer, but the askbot software doesn't implement that functionality yet. For now, let's just put a comment directly underneath the question that looks like this:

If 'duplicate' is a lot to type, just use 'dupe' :-) If you have gained enough karma to tag questions, please tag the q with:

todo-close-as-dupe

That will let the mods know that the question should be closed. Thanks!
