I see that many legitimate proposals are closed very quickly (often by the same people). Why? Shouldn't some more time be given to proposals?
For instance, take this one: http://area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/21699/psychologist-for-programmers
A spoof? Possible.
Will eventually not result in a useful, productive, or viable Q&A site? Almost sure.
However, closing it in such a short time after the creation seems just excess of zealotry to me.
