Sooner or later I will get enough reputation to protect questions. It’s not my intention, as it's never been, to use my privileges more often than I am expected. I would appreciate it, therefore, if someone who’s been here long enough could clarify this:
- What kind of question do you think should be protected, and why?
- What are questions protected from? From being closed? Or from getting a “thank you note”?
- When do you protect a question? When you think it is likely to be close-voted by 5 members?
- Can a mod close a protected question?
- And finally, I once had a question protected by community. Since community is not a person, but the system, so I”ve been led to believe, why did community protect my question? Was it a random event?
