We get a lot of questions of the form "I left food out for some period of time, is it safe?" and generally close them as a duplicate of a canonical question with a comment about how it applies. The most common one is How do I know if food left at room temperature is still safe to eat? which has the usual advice about time in the danger zone.
Is this a reasonable approach? Are there somewhat more specific canonical questions we should be using in some cases? Should we be answering some of these questions instead of closing them, presumably with some slightly tailored version of the time in the danger zone advice?
Note as background that "duplicate" doesn't mean "literal duplicate", just same answers:
Questions may be duplicates if they have the same (potential) answers. This includes not only word-for-word duplicates, but also the same idea expressed in different words.
