I voted to close this question as duplicate, and before anyone else voted on it, the Community user backed up my vote. Apparently they can dupe hammer as if they had a gold badge. Under what circumstances does this situation occur?


Community bot closes duplicates when the author of the question confirms that it is a duplicate. It is able to close at once because it has a moderator status (a diamond next to its name).

See New UI encourages askers to confirm or dispute duplicate votes
