I asked a question after checking it hadn't been asked already. I'm an experienced stack exchange user so I made the question pretty unambiguous, explaining terms, giving examples and background, showing prior research, etc.
Gnat posted a 'possible duplicate' comment and I immediately responded clarifying the difference between the questions:
Gnat then posted a link to a very long meta thread, with no explanation, but the top voted answer was saying that people who were receiving incorrect "close as duplicates" votes should edit an explanation of the difference into the question. So I did exactly this.
It still got closed as a duplicate anyway:
There's really no similarity between the questions at all except that both involve dealing with (very different) behaviours that can make meetings less productive. It's not just me who thinks so:
I flagged the incorrect closing, with no response.
Dealing with these spurious close votes has eaten up time and caused an already-long question to get even longer, and the question took around an hour and half to be re-opened.
I'm unlikely to use this site again, but I thought I should flag that people might be closing questions without reading them.
