Marked as duplicate: Why is this international internet traffic routed so inefficiently?
I had a question. As you may know, it's a challenge to ask the right question or look for answers if you don't have any knowledge on the topic.
Thus I not only asked a question about the problem I was experiencing, but also asked for clarification on a peculiarity I found while investigating that problem - for my comprehension of the mechanics unrelated to the question. However, because of this, the original question was marked as not focused. This action, I completely agree with.
I fixed it, by moving the peculiarity to a new question, and editing the original one to be only about the initial problem. While on the same topic, the questions are unrelated.
Now the new question got marked as a duplicate. The edited question is still closed as not focused. Does that seem right to you?
