Does anyone else find it more than a little irritating, when one spends 10 minutes or more, typing an answer, only to discover it has been closed or put on hold, during that time?
The 'closer' gets to chip in their opinion, then closes it (or holds it) without giving a damn what others may be writing; or the time spent in doing so. Moreover, in holding the question, more information is frequently requested. In such cases, such additional information may not be relevant or required, by my answer; yet I will have to return to re-write everything I have just written, or save it as a word file, for later posting, if I bother - which, I probably will not.
Were these questions left open for at least some time - more than the 15 minutes as was just the case - I may be less inclined to complain. However, I have absolutely no idea what purpose is served, by holding a question. I can see further data has been requested, and I am more than capable of discerning, for myself, whether I am of the same opinion. If I am not, I see no reason why I should be encumbered by the requirements of another, which I may believe to be petty or unnecessary.
