Occasionally on SO, a question will be asked which isn’t necessarily clear. There is often some initial activity where questions are asked in comments which are answered, but after a while the question may become dormant.
For example the person asking the question has ignored the last few comments / questions raised about the question they asked. Is there a point at which the question should be considered dead/defunct/unanswerable? Is there any etiquette around how long to give the questioner? Does this change if it’s an individual’s first question (some people seem to log on, ask a question, get distracted and go somewhere else)?
