Perhaps it would be nice to have a query for questions which are closed as a duplicate and the duplicate target is itself closed: Should a closed question be reopened if it gets a duplicate?.

Q: Should a closed question be reopened if it gets a duplicate?

Robert SoupeThis question How do you prove that $n^2-1$ is composite when $n>2$? was closed as a duplicate. That was the right outcome, as opposed to, you know, "off-topic." But the question it's a duplicate of is closed! Prove that there doesn't exist any integer $x \ge 3$ such that $x^2-1$ is prime. At le...

What five odd integers have a sum of 30? Shou...
