Recently I was looking through the close votes review queue when I came across this question, and it was flagged as a duplicate of this question. These two questions really are exact duplicates of each other. The problem is that the referenced question in the close vote is horrendous!
First of all, the accepted answer is a super judgy "It's none of your business", which is only true for that particular asker's situation. There are plenty of legitimate reasons I'd be interested in what's on a USB stick I found in the parking lot of my workplace.
Secondly, the rest of the answers -- all of them with upvotes, BTW -- are either snarky or do not provide enough detail to be useful. One that suggests there's no malware risk on a Mac is downright dangerous! In fact, the only answer that even remotely addresses the asker's question on a technical level has no votes at all on it. It is a genuinely terrible place to be directing people that have the same question.
The duplicate, however, is a better-asked question and has much better answers than the one it duplicates. I wound up editing the duplicate (to make the title a little clearer) and voted to close the referenced question as the duplicate.
My only issue is that now we have a question in the past that is marked as a duplicate of a question in the future. Was that the appropriate action? Should I be flagging the referenced question to close for another reason? It really adds nothing to the site as the whole thing is really an ethics question rather than a technical one.
