Now that I can, I closed an answer as duplicate. But it still appears on the unanswered list and in searches. Is there any way to make it less visible or should I just delete it?

Thanks, there are a few bugs that show at certain states of questions, including this one - that need to be solved.

Is it also possible to automatically remove questions that are closed as duplicates? It doesn't make sense to have them around, on the site or the database.

It does make sense -- if people enter the question ABC (into a seach engine or local askbot search) and end up on the "closed as duplicate of XYZ" page, they can go to XYZ. Otherwise, they might ask ABC again, which will be closed as duplicate again, etc. etc. :)
