A simple and clear edit of the question is enough to bounce it back to the front page or active questions. Clear and professional writing will get people to read past the first lines that show up in the summary for the question. If it is clear that the question is not a duplicate through the wording of the question (rather than argumentative text at the top), the question will likely get a reopen vote which will put it back in the reopen review queue. A revision that clearly shows that the question is not a duplicate (rather than arguments that it is not) is much more likely to garner the necessary reopen reviews.
When an edit to a question is made, it goes into the reopen review. If previous revisions were made and reopen review said no, it would take a reopen vote to kick it into the queue.
The reviewers will see something like https://softwareengineering.stackexchange.com/review/reopen/129650 that shows the most recent revision to the question.
The revision for yours that would have made it into the reopen queue would look like:
The February 12th 2015 revision is the one that should have kicked it into the queue. I don't see it in there currently (as of this writing, 10k tools revision history page 75 would have it)
That said, the key question that I have when I look at a reopen review is "is this post one that should be open in its current state?" And looking at that post, the answer is quite simply "no". It would take a bit of editing with someone who appears to be angry and likes to use all caps bold. That isn't a situation that I want to engage in - I've gotten my ear chewed off far too many times in the past for me to want to get into fixing the question based on that revision. Such content makes it one that I am much more likely to cast a delete vote on because I don't have the time to moderate it than to cast a reopen vote. I am much more likely to work with a calm professional than someone who is going to yell.
Yes, I did go back in after it was reopened (and accidently overwrote Maple's edit - rollbacks do that) and rolled it back to the latest version that didn't have any meta bits in it.
Ideally, when one wants to say "this isn't a duplicate" - the process isn't to write IT IS NOT THE SAME QUESTION at the top, but rather to seamlessly write the question so that it clearly isn't a duplicate. This should be done without writing 'edit:' in the middle of the body - the post is one comprehensive whole that shouldn't need to be bounced up and down from comment to question and back again. Write the question clearly and as professionally as one would expect to find on MSDN or similar documentation - that is how to get a question reopened.
