This question caught my eye because it had accumulated close votes as being a duplicate of another question, which is very rare on CR. The target was a question I reviewed last year by the same user.
The new question:
- Has no indication that it is a follow-up.
- Makes all of the same mistakes as the original posting plus a few new ones (all of the same HTML validation errors are there, I even linked to the validator so the OP cannot claim they didn't know about it)
- I can literally copy my answer from the original and paste it into the new one and everything I mentioned would still apply, some of which is quite unique to the OP's code (on SO, if you can copy/paste answers between questions, that's a pretty good indication that they're duplicates)
- The only modifications made from the previous posting to the new posting is either additional code or changing div elements to spans
At best, the OP can feign ignorance of the etiquete here on CR regarding follow-ups. At worst, it looks like they OP is covering the minimum number of bases (hey, there's code here) necessary to get their question answered (ELI5 difference between span and div, hint: we've answered that one already on SO, but the OP asked again anyway and it was closed as a dupe). Also note that the user in question was "temporarily suspended for rule violations" over on SO.
Why am I bothering to give a review if the OP isn't going to learn anything from it? This isn't a case of the OP not agreeing with any of the points I've made, either (and that's fine, I don't expect everyone will agree with everything I have to say). In this case, absolutely nothing was learned, including the purely objective stuff like HTML validation. I firmly believe the OP is taking advantage of us here, and we fell for it and rewarded them with upvotes and answers.
Update: the OP is now going back and editing their questions to be a help request and actively soliciting help in comments.
