I haven't posted in about a year so please bare with me if I'm not following proper protocol. I asked a question yesterday and immediately it was flagged as a duplicate question. I commented below why I thought it wasn't and did not directly address the user that started the VTC process because of course it wasn't anything personal, I was just voicing a complaint with the system that I probably should have posted here instead. I feel it was taken as an insult though because my question was closed with only the originator of the VTC posting that I did have a point that there was no source stated it might have just been opinion.
The issues that I'm running into is, One: the quickness that my question was voted closed even with an explanation provided by me in comment that I didn't feel the answer given in the other question had reference to support its conclusion about the subject of my question.
Two: I feel this one is more important with a site this large and with the potential for any answer to cause a duplication of question it seems that eventually there can be no new questions on a specific subject such as horcruxes or boba fett et cetera. For instance I have another question I would like to ask on the subject that doesn't seem to have been asked before but while researching I found an answer that also for two sentences states an opinion that could cause my question to be marked as duplicate. I would just link and say "it was addressed in an answer to this question but I feel this is opinion not fact any sources" (which I probably will post it as that anyways) I feel my question would still be flagged and closed as duplicate even with making this careful effort.
So is there an existing line of "well it was stated as opinion rather than sourced so it shouldn't be counted the same as fact" or does there need to be one implemented?
