@JohnMa 10' has to be deleted first to delete 10.
I don't know why they didn't vote to close 10' as off-topic but as duplicate. Both are PSQs and the duplicate link makes it harder to delete them.

Ugh! Twice in 10 minutes, I've tried to leave comments on questions in the "Close" queue, only to be told that they are audits. Why do I bother?!
Audits actively discourage me from spending any time trying to improve questions. :(

I think this user is exactly a mirror version of rep farmer cuz this user has been persistently posting PSQs for so many years. E.g. q1, q2,
q3, q4, q5, q6,
q7, q8, q9, q10,
I wonder if this user could be extensively suspended or even deleted. It seems really illegitimate to have been doing this for so many years.

@AlexFrancisco This user has been mentioned lots of time in this room. Indeed I think all their questions posted in 2017 has been deleted.

Then I'll spend all the deletion votes on this user in the next couple of days…

I see that there is a vote to close 2823441: Convergence of $\sum\frac{1}{n(\log(n))^c}$ as a duplicate of 1382055: Condition on p for convergence of $\sum{\frac{1}{n(\log(n))^p}}$. Would perhaps the opposite direction be better - so that we end up with a duplicate target which is less likely to get closed for lack of context.
I will add that I am aware of the fact that this would mean closing an older post as a duplicate of a newer (today's) post. A ping for @MartinR who cast the first duplicate close vote (judging by the comments).
 
11:37 AM
I will also ask about direction of the duplicate votes here: 2212504: Prove that $\sum_{n=1}^\infty\frac{n}{n^2+1}$ is divergent and 2812845: Convergence or not of infinite series: $\sum^{\infty}_{n=1}\frac{n}{1+n^2}$. The latter was posted just today, but it already has more answers than the older one. (Probably it was in HNQ?)
Or should answers from today's post be merged into the older one?

@MartinSleziak Here is another (older) one: Convergence of the series $\sum \limits_{n=2}^{\infty} \frac{1}{n\log^s n}$, which has context, covers both solution approaches (integral test + condensation test), plus some generalizations.
 
@MartinR So maybe this one could serve as a duplicate target for both posts mentioned in my post. What do you say, does that sound reasonable?
BTW thanks for finding another post about this. (I should have said posts - plural - I've just noticed your comment on the main.)
 
@AlexFrancisco The moderators have been informed of this user before. You can try again in the Mods chat-room. Curiously, not all their questions are PSQs. For example this recent one came with a nearly complete attempt. It is very difficult to understand why they repeatedly post bad questions when it is clear that they know how to post reasonable ones.
 
@MartinSleziak That's fine with me. – I just wish some “high-rep” users would search for duplicates as well, instead of answering “fast.” There are so many questions where every experienced MSE user should think first “That must have been asked and answered before”! – I am sure that it happened to me as well (answering a duplicate), but posting an answer within 2 minutes means that no research was done at all. (SCNR, will stop ranting now.)
 
Especially users with high reputation in a specific tag should be able to recognize question which appeared before. (And, in addition to that, gold badgers have dupehammer.)
