This question was fueled by below linked question. The idea behind this question, namely re-opening poorly posed closed questions and mark them as dupe instead, may be important as a general issue, given that dupes are not only allowed, but may even be desirable in the SE network;
The question Why do we fear the night? was closed as being off topic. I voted for closure too, probably due to the kind of awkward way the question was asked.
Now - given that the answered question is very well received and that, in retrospect, OP of the closed question was asking the same thing, I propose to re-open the closed question and mark it as dupe and link the now answered question to it. I edited the closed question to improve the English use.
