Can automatic deletion of "low-quality" posts be turned off?

Sorry, but this is a network-wide feature, not something that can be configured for each site. That said, this statement is really problematic: Regardless of whether a post is truly low-quality or ...

Can those who voted to close a post voluntarily give up reviewing reopening the same post?

No. And, again, no. Neither are a good idea. To clarify, and head off the inevitable complaints about the brevity of my answer, the people that originially voted to close are in fact the most ...

How does one relinquish his/her right to close questions without review?

You don't like it because the normal vote-to-close behavior tricks you into thinking your opinion is worth less than it really is. But it is a trick. Your opinion is worth a lot. Finding ...

there should be some indicator to a Q&A if it's used in another question.
