I asked a question yesterday

How to launch a long-running Python code in a Docker container running on a remote server

and then it crossed my mind that maybe the question was off-topic

Is this question about long-running codes on remote servers in-topic?

As it turns out, the question was in-topic and actually a duplicate. Also, the question of which my question is a duplicate has some excellent answers. I haven't been very active on Stack Exchange in the last years, but I seem to remember that duplicates are bad. Should I delete my question, or do I just leave it there?

    Maybe not the best reason, but you will get the Internet points for the upvotes that come along from leaving it.
