We need simple non-negative reasons to delete a question

Most of the reasons that appear when deleting a post are all pretty negative. We need some simple non-negative reasons for deleting a post, such as:

  • Duplicate post - Sometimes we somehow manage to post the same thing twice, especially when something we just posted doesn't appear right away. I see this happen at least once a week in the forums I watch.
  • Wrong thread - this might fit under the irrelevant reason. Sometimes people have multiple tabs open and after debugging an issue for a while, paste the solution into the wrong thread. Happened to me a few times.
