I despise the fact that questions close automatically.
I despise the fact that if I choose to not pick a MHO, one is picked randomly after 30 days.
I despise that if I want to keep my question open, I can try bumping it with updates, but that such updates do NOT count as activity to keep a question from closing, they just make the question more visable again.
I also despise that you can only update a question twice in a week, despite a question closing after 2 days of no activity.
Let's see if maybe, just maybe, we can get GaG to get a clue on this.

- I hate the fact that questions close automatically without asking me if I want them closed!95%(19)95%(35)Vote94%(16)
Taking note, GaG?
... of course not.
So, guesses! Do we think they were trolls, or do we think they are GaG staffers, blindly defending the site?
Either way, 28 to 2 so far? Pretty definitive.

Idc that they choose MHO randomly after 30 days. I do care that I have to close questions in order to ask new ones. And I do care that my questions are closing after 48 hours of inactivity. I'm not a fan at all.2

MHO being autopicked by the system after 30 days is fine, I don't have much complaints about that, because you will have to control the decision to choose your MHO for 1 whole month.
As far as questions being closed automatically are concerned, yes even I dislike that to some extent, but then don't you think there should be some automatic system in place and plus this update can get you some replies if not many. However yes the time window by which the question closes atuomatically is too small. Just 2 days!!. I think it should be at least a week.
That will give you enough time to update your question and also enough time for other users to reply as well2
