How exactly do post merges work, and what would be the reason for two questions being merged?
I happen to come across this post, which is marked as being a duplicate, and links to this post, which is marked as merged - which links back to the post I had just come from.
What seems odd to me, is that the post marked as merged, and is older, has many more views, and has no answers - but the newer post, is a duplicate of the old post, and has everything. Arent duplicates supposed to trickle down to the correct question?
Is this a bug? Bad merge? Or what exactly happened here?
If I understand correctly, should the merge have gone the other way? The answers moved into the original question?
