Consider the following list of questions of the form "Is X kitniyos" or "Why is/n't X kitniyos":
- Why do we have Kosher L'Pesach quinoa but not buckwheat (kasha)?
- Why isn't chocolate considered to be kitniyos?
- Is tofu cheese "kitniyot" on Passover?
- Canola Oil - Kitnyos?
- Wild rice and Pesach
- Is Marijuana Kittnos
- Are Jobs tears (coix seed) kitniyot?
- Is tobbaco Kitniyos?
- Quinoa Kitniyos status
On their own, these questions are fine. But then we run into How do we operationally define kitniyos?
As per Closing as duplicate of broader post, the community consensus seems to be that if a complete answer to question A would also answer question B, then question B should be closed as a duplicate of question A. So, since any complete answer to How do we operationally define kitniyos? will set forth criteria by which we can determine if something is kitniyos or not, all of the above questions would seem to be a duplicate of this broader one...right?
I do not think that the following questions should be closed as a duplicate, as all of them address a specific concern unique to that question which would not be addressed at all by the broader kitniyos question:
- Corn as kitniot - provides reason why it might not be kitniyos
- Are there communities which permit oats on Pesach? - first asks about oats independent of kitniyos, then asks about theoretical communities which might say oats are kitniyos
- Why is rice banned on Pesach by those who don't eat kitniyot? - provides reason why it might not be kitniyos
- What's the earliest source/discussion on green beans being "kitniyot" (prohibited legumes) on Passover? - asks for sources specifically about green beans, rather than rationales in general which can be applied to green beans
Is my interpretation of the duplicate policy correct, and if so, should the questions on the above list be closed as duplicates of the broader post?
