Questions which have been (or are in the process of being closed as a duplicate) often get answers posted anyway. What's the best way to deal with these answers? The problem with upvotes (even to the answers, let alone to the question) is that it more or less pulls focus away from the preferred original question and its answers. OTOH, it doesn't make sense to downvote an answer purely because the question is a dupe.
Is it best just to ignore the answers? Would it be useful to have some sort of automated migration or removal of answers once the question is closed?
