I noticed that a user reposted a question that was already posted on this site. Originally the question of the user was closed due to being too broad or opinion based by users. However, the user proactively asked for help improving the question and later made some adjustments to the question.
After improvements were made I voted to reopen it as I thought that after the changes (although still bit crude) my reasons for closing were no longer valid. However, the question remained closed as far as I can tell.
Now the user deleted the old question and reposted the improved version (i.e. the last edit of the old question was copied verbatim as far as I can tell). On one hand I can on some level understand it - I am guessing the user thought that many other users simply won't bother going back and considering reopening so the user wanted to give it another 'shot' with bit improved question. Also, to my best knowledge this is the first time the user did this and I don't think the user is 'troll' even though the user caused some problems in the past I think the user engages in good faith.
On the other hand, if we allow users to do this where will we draw the line? Also, this unnecessarily wastes time of the community as it is entirely possible the users who vote to close down/downvote went through their ques and simply decided the improvements were not enough to retract their votes.
Furthermore, I am aware that this issue was already discussed on meta here. However, the post only discusses this ex ante (saying we should not repost but rather edit) and does not say what we should do ex post (when we see someone reposting). Should such question be closed or should be allowed to stand? Technically since old question was deleted there is no longer any duplicate to use as a reason for closing. At the same time as discussed above I am not sure if allowing this practice is good for the community.
