Please consider enhanced duplicate detection as outlined and discussed here:

http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=1012215

Simply compare the "title" field of the referenced page. If it matches, perhaps compare the domain name, ignoring any "www". Or perhaps not bother. The number of occasions the title matches when the page is different should be sufficiently small.




On a related note: somebody else suggested the ability to merge duplicates.
