While questions with similar titles seems to be asked a lot on Pro Webmasters meta (yes, I've searched), they seem to survive because they are not about the same question. So I'll take my chances.
So here is my hard-luck story: My carefully crafted question: https://webmasters.stackexchange.com/questions/39817/methods-for-keeping-no-good-scrapers-off-the-site was closed as an "exact duplicate" of Tactics for dealing with misbehaving robots
The closure must have been based upon title alone, because my question starts out of by referring to the industry standard honeypot and blocking method offered as the "solution" in the former thread, then goes on to explain why I believe this is not the right solution, provides an alternate solution using CAPTCHA (not at all mentioned in the former thread). And then asks for criticism/feedback of that particular idea (and if there exists other potential for improvement).
So what are my options here? Is there any hope of getting my question reopened? Or should I just bite the bullet and start a needless argument against the upvoted "non-solution" that exists in the alleged "exact duplicate"? Or should I just repost it with a new title? (since I'm pretty sure that it is the title similarity that prompted the closure in the first place.)
