There's got to be a less user-hostile way of handling deduplication, though I do appreciate that there are several conflicting objectives here. Maybe the annoyance could be partly mitigated by also transferring the upvotes so the original story has a chance of re-ranking on the hot page again.

You mention that it's user hostile. Can you explain why?
