This question already has an answer here:
One thing I really dislike about SO is how quickly questions get closed by "know it all" people who has 3K or more reputations.
I do like helping people by answering their questions. I get more satisfaction (care) from answering questions in full than from the reputation, badges or other SO attributes. But most I can do is to leave a comment, which is bazaar, since for many closed questions I do get what people are asking even if it is not formulated in a way in which SO "little gods" like it.
What we can do
Can we have a "Vote to Clarify" vs. just a "Vote to Close", where, if enough votes is gathered (i.e. 5), no answers will be accepted until the author clarifies the question. The flow can be as cruel as SO likes it: for example a question can be closed automatically 3 days after clarification is not provided, etc..
This is not about "it needs moderator attention", but about a separate "vote to clarify" flow
