A user asked a question about the phrase dot and carry one. The first comment queried whether the question qualified as general reference and supplied a link to an answer. The link goes to an external site that also uses a question-and-answer format. Subsequent comments indicated that the answer could be found via web searches and the question was eventually closed.
The results of a search on Google for dot and carry one contain many Q&A sites, including EL&U, but few dictionaries. It seems odd to close a question on general-reference grounds when none of the results higher than the EL&U result are from dictionaries.
In situations where web searches lead to other Q&A sites, should the reason for closing be given as exact duplicate instead of general reference? Or perhaps there needs to be a new reason for closing that indicates that the answer is available via a web search, but not specifically in a general reference?
