I have found the main forum an excellent resource for concise, good quality questions and answers, so I do understand the philosophy to remove woolly, off-topic or old (stale) questions.
But when I run through the review queues recently, I've seem to find many good questions are marked off-topic or too-broad, which have been active for less than a day, and feel that some we should at least allow to run for a couple of days. They are usually the difficult ones.
The OP may be away, in meetings, other deadline and can't reply to a question, or maybe the person who could answer hasn't seen it yet, because they live in a different timezone and hasn't woken up yet, or just been away from their terminal.
Are we being a little over zealous in trying to keep this forum clean?
Edit: Tks for all your comments, I think I will now choose to close and not feel too bad knowing that it can be edited by OP and then reviewed for re-open.
I also like @Philip Couling's comment below will adopt to do this when I think it necessary, something like this,
I am voting to close this question, because it doesn't appear to be answerable and I haven't seen further clarification; however, if you edit your question, it will be sent to the review queue for re-opening.
