I've been noticing a weird trend on Stack Overflow lately.
Questions getting closed for rules that aren't broken in the question in question, questions getting closed but the closer making zero comment to the user why it was closed, questions getting closed and being declared as a duplicate of another question that will have zero to do with it, and more. Could we get that looked into?
I suspect that some people are rep farming somehow by closing questions (maybe closing all questions that are competing with theirs at the moment they post, as just a guess? Not sure.)
If I'm right, since closing is specifically the removal of someone else's work (or multiple peoples' if someone else has commented or provided an answer), closing shouldn't be initially free, and that cost should only be removed once that close request has been reviewed and approved by someone else.
