Now that you've gone and observed this, thus collapsing the wave function, they're both closed, the way they should be. Thanks for pointing those out - there are a lot of yet-unclosed questions which would, by all rights, deserve it.
In other words, those are oooold questions, asked back when the rules were different and dinosaurs roamed the earth (2009, in this case). Rules have changed since then (to prevent SO from drowning in a deluge of "what's your favorite X" and "hidden features of Y" lists-masqueraded-as-questions), so new questions like this are no longer accepted, and the old are temporarily tolerated, and slowly closed one by one.
(as for "Why don't you just ignore it and focus on another question?" - we tried. The result was a vast, endless sea of questions without a clear answer, just drifting along, overwhelming the people that could otherwise answer actual answerable questions. See, the number of questions or disk space or bandwith is not a real problem; it's the number of people who are capable and willing to answer.
Also, I would vote to close and then just ignore, but 1) others have already done that and 2) the people who post duplicate and off-topic questions (e.g. the OP of this question) keep bringing this up and making a fuss.)
