Should a parent bless a child resting one hand or both?

The question was answered by-the-way in an answer on a different question. Is this considered duplicate?

If not - should the answer be copied/linked to/other?

Is this considered duplicate?

No. I just looked briefly for a canonical Meta Stack Overflow post or Stack Exchange Blog post that says so directly and couldn't find one, but, nonetheless, closure as duplicate is for duplication of a question, not of things mentioned in answers.

(Sometimes having the same answer is an indication questions may be duplicates. But not always, and certainly not in this case.)

If not - should the answer be copied/linked to/other?

In my opinion, either quoting or summarizing the relevant parts of the preexisting answer, and providing a link to it as your source, is a good way to go.

  • @DoubleAA Thanks. Actually, the first of the two questions I block-quoted in my answer is a duplicate of that; maybe the question above should be reduced to the second....
