I don’t understand da logic behind it…wot’s da point of doin this?
I believe once MHOs r given…. it's considered ”case closed”...

I don't know it's kinda weird. i feel the same way about it being case closed once mho's are given. sometimes i think people just see it on their feed and answer it without even looking at how old the question is. i've definitely done that a few times.2

The purpose of MHOs, from the way I understand it, is if someone has a question and then later someone searches for that question and finds it, the most helpful opinion will be right at the top where they can see it.
But that doesn't mean that there isn't more input available from people who may not have known the question even existed.
Additionally, very few people seem to actually use MHO for this purpose - indeed the concept of an MHO doesn't even make sense for things like the "How do I look?" or "Is it big enough?" questions. Add to that, it doesn't seem like a lot of people really use the search function here - there is very little effort to see if a question has already been asked.3
