The automatic "closing" of questions will be a fucking disaster. Once the user gets opinions confirming their views, they give MHO and the question is closed.
The site will slow to a crawl and the website will self-destruct itself if this doesn't get changed soon.3

I never cared if I got MHO or not and would help out even if MHO was chosen just to add advice and perspective. Now, you can't add any opinion after MPH is chosen, or after 48 hours of inactivity on a question. Since we don't all live on this site, by the time I see a question it is closed.
The only reason I stuck around this long was to help others. Now, I won't be able to do that consistently.
Now let's address the private opinion. What if someone else has a similar problem and wants to read the answers? If some are hidden, I guess that person will have to ask the same question, which will get less views as people hate to repeat themselves in opinions. Anonymous was more than enough, or private message if you're that worried about your opinion.
I am thinking this could be the end of GaG and me. Not much point now.2
