I had a question on meta stackexchange about tvtropes, I did my research made sure it isn't a duplicate and asked. Sadly there it was off-topic.
I got referred to this site. So I asked the same question over here.
I just copy pasted the parts and clicked "Post your question".
In the same moment I saw the "Questions that may already have your answer" list refreshing seeing exactly that question in it. I immediately deleted by question and found there an satisfying answer.
In this morning I saw my post on meta: What is it about tvtropes link disclaimers? is it a running gag or is there some real danger?
Got undeleted, marked as duplicate (what is absolutely correct), and multiple times downvoted.
So my question here is:
Why I'm enforced to keep low quality posts (I guess the community sees it that way, otherwise no idea why getting downvoted) that are dupes anyway, accessible? Who profits from this?
