So, let me see if I get it... we can decide to close our questions or leave them open, oh well, GREAT NEWS, but wait... if you wanna ask another question YOU HAVE TO CLOSE THEM... not so great now, HUH?
I don't ask that many questions, so it doesn't really affect me, but I see your concern. I still would like them to extend the inactivity period before closing questions. A week would be better than two days. After then, I've pretty much forgotten about whatever I've asked anyway.
