You need at least 3k reputation to review Close Votes -- yes, sounds reasonable (although 3k is a little high, but that's not what this is about).
I could learn a lot about how SO works if I could read the review threads. I understand not being able to participate until I've displayed that I'm a good citizen (although I do, truly, think that being considered guilty until proven innocent is an absolutely disgusting policy), but I don't understand why you hold these deliberations behind closed doors.
Surely you guys have noticed that the open societies around you are the most successful, and the societies that base privileges on status and who keep their governance behind locked doors, open only to a few anointed individuals are doomed to end in flames...
So, can you allow at least read-only access to the court records please? I'd be ever so thrilled.
