I just a had a question I asked about current to ground marked as duplicate of another question I asked a couple of years ago about the polarity of potentials marked as duplicate. While I certainly see the questions are related, they are not asking about the same phenomena, so how could they be duplicate? Related, for sure, but duplicate - hardly.
In the one question, I asked about where the current flowed in a circuit (positive terminal to ground, or positive terminal to negative terminal, when a ground is present in the circuit and is not the negative terminal). In the other question, I asked about how to measure voltages at various points in a circuit (also with a ground present in the circuit that is not the negative terminal of the battery).
Thankfully, it wasn't marked duplicate before some helpful folks actually answered the question or I would still be in the dark about my question. Surely, this isn't the intent of the duplicate question process.
I know it may sound like I'm complaining, but really, I'm hoping to understand why the quick closure of what seemed to be a productive Q&A.
