Well, if two topics got started at the very same time or say within ten minutes of each other, we'd have to choose to keep the one that is better written or will create the best discussion.

For example, if two topics were started like

1. "Is Drogba is the worlds greatest striker" (then a discussion with examples & clips)
2. "chelsea YAY drogs GETS TEH WIN" (with nothing but "lol" written in it)

Then we would obviously choose the first one. Neither would get punished though, because they were started without knowing the other existed. However, if it was created a few hours or a day or more after the original, then we'd have to close the duplicate because it was made without searching if an older one was already there.

It would be good to have the ability to merge similar topics for sure, but at present we don't have that tool.

The best way to ensure it doesn't happen is to search thoroughly before making new topics, and make sure the topic you make is a good discussion, especially if it is in the Stands
