For this question: if/else statements or exceptions

enter image description here

I feel like the "Possible Duplicate" text should not be there, and the "Defensive Programming vs Exception Handling?" question link should appear under the "This question already has answers here:" text.

That's because that question has been closed a long, long time ago, when the duplicate notice was added in the question body itself. It needs a ♦ moderator (or a gold tag badge holder, but there are none in the question's tags) to reopen and close the question again; then, the blue notice will be updated and show the correct duplicate.

Reference: Duplicate post notice missing the duplicate on Meta Stack Exchange.


I fixed it. Thanks for pointing it out.
