I came searching for the question what should a North American driver know when driving in Europe for the first time, and the following question:

What should someone from the US know when driving in Italy?

It was marked as duplicate to the then-titled "What are the main differences in traffic regulations between the US/Europe?", to which the questions asks and the answers recount what a European should know when driving in the United States, which is the reverse.

As a result, my question has been asked but marked as a duplicate with the answer of exactly the reverse of what I wanted to know.

Should the duplicate flag be removed?

  • We have a system for this. It's the reopen flag. Add a comment about why it's not a duplicate, and vote to reopen. Unfortunately sometimes people make mistakes. – Mark Mayo May 3 '16 at 1:25
  • @MarkMayo how do you actually do that? I've never been able to find that button – Belle-Sophie May 3 '16 at 9:01
  • @J.Constantine it's usually under the question - along with 'share', 'edit', 'close'. Maybe there's a rep qualification for it? IN that case you can flag it for a mod to consider for reopening. – Mark Mayo May 3 '16 at 13:10
  • @MarkMayo Indeed, I would've voted for re-open, but the reopen vote privilege is around 3k rep from my StackOverflow memory which I'm not even close to have, hence this question. – Jonathan Allard May 3 '16 at 20:45

    Ack, another crazy case of blatant "close as duplicate" abuse. Why does this keep happening here? Glad to see this one got reopened eventually. – user568458 May 10 '16 at 23:35
