- Why Do We Need to Close Questions? 5 answers
People sometimes ask unclear, duplicate, or broad questions, which are downvoted and closed. Closing it is literally just keeping people from answering the question. I do not see how closing such questions is helpful to the community. What if there is somebody who can answer broad questions, or someone who can understand unclear questions? Why keep them from answering such questions? How does closing a question cause good to the community? If someone can understand such questions, why not let them answer the question?
