Here are two questions by the same user asking almost the same thing:
- How to justify the absence of weapons (originally asked here, still open)
- How can I justify the absence of weapons? (migrated from Writers SE, closed as duplicate of the first question)
Evidently user96551 originally cross-posted the question here and at Writers, and the second version was migrated here and dupe-closed, but not before gathering several answers.
The two questions between them have 30 answers (16 on one, 14 on the other), many of which are high quality. Normally the obvious choice of action would be to merge the two questions, thus placing all the answers together in a single thread. Unfortunately the two questions are not completely identical, and I haven't checked whether all the answers to one would fit as answers to the other.
I flagged this for moderator attention a while ago, hoping a merge could go through, but was told to bring it up on meta. So here I am, bringing it up on meta.
