Need a better recourse against frivolous moderator action
I'm presuming that moderators can close questions at their sole discretion (as opposed to questions receiving multiple community votes to close the question). This indicates to me that the moderators need to be pretty dang certain that they are closing questions for the right reasons, and if there is any doubt - let the community decide.
Its pretty annoying that my question was closed as 'exact duplicate' when it infact isnt. Doubly annoying on meta where the rules should be more relaxed, Triply annoying when said moderator doesnt respond to comments (and if I knew what came after triply I'd probably add some more)
I'd still like a chance to discuss that proposal, and hear the counter arguments for it (which I am sure there must be, since I'm picking up some downvotes - presumably from people that disagree but cant express it in any other way than adding a downvote)
Oh and yes, I realise this isnt a question - just a rant. But I have no idea where else to put this. Thanks :)
