I recently edited the canonical Q&A post with the inclusion of a very popular topic: How do I improve boot speed?
Now, a new question about this pops up (there is at least 1 new post per week about this), so I'm just curious about your opinion:
- Should this question (and most previous similar questions) be closed as dupe, and pointed to the canonical post I found?
- Or should we allow these posts to pop up all the time, and be answered individually?
I think you already guessed that I'm for option 1.
As a bonus element, I also lean towards downvoting most of these questions (at least if they don't include anything more specific than "How do I improve boot speed"), since their poster obviously has not done any research and hasn't found the many thousands previous posts about the same topic. Is it too harsh to feel this way?
