In the list of "related questions", is it possible to remove the links to closed questions, or at least demarcate them as closed in the list? Example:

Related:
Question X
Question Y
Question Z

Related but CLOSED:
Question A
Question B

Questions that are closed are closed for good reason (off topic, complete duplicate), and having to come across questions that are already recognized as poor is time consuming.

    $\begingroup$ Not a bad idea, but this would require a change to the Stack Exchange software, so someone from the development team will have to comment on it. $\endgroup$ – David Z May 13 '11 at 18:06

    $\begingroup$ @mbq: It's already been asked on MSO, and the current status is "by-design". If - while discussing this here - you can come up with some better reasons for why the current behavior is inappropriate, please contribute them to that thread. $\endgroup$ – Shog9 May 13 '11 at 18:54
  • $\begingroup$ Since this is being handled on the main meta site already, at the link Shog9 provided, I'll close it as off-topic here (even though it's not really off-topic, at least not in a bad way). $\endgroup$ – David Z May 22 '11 at 23:09
  • $\begingroup$ This question should be migrated to meta stack exchange as mbq suggests. $\endgroup$ – Farewell Stack Exchange Aug 23 '17 at 15:16
