Why do people ask questions and then get 2- 3 answers and close the questions?

What's the bother of writing a question then you get 2 -3 answers then all of a sudden the question is closed. Especially after it was a looooong story we take the time to read and find out it's closed. Or am I missing something and there is a way to find out it's closed before reading it all?? *sigh*

  • I've encountered them and it is closed within a minute of being asked, frustrating when I've taken the time to type out an answer.

  • I've often thought that as well. Unless it's something where it's a plain out Yes or No like "Does supper Nanny come on tonight?" Where one simply answer will work... Beyond that why would you not wait at least til you get a full page of answers...

  • meh - it's not about me... i just assume that people either found what they were looking for or did not want anymore responses for another reason - but really i don't think about it... again, it's not about me...

  • I close things as soon as I get an answer, or at least an answers I 'like'. There really is no reason for me to keep it open if I have what I'm looking for.....
