This is regarding the following question, but is part of a broader pattern of people not using their votes: If my aunt got married and had a child with her ex-husband, would that make my cousin's father's side of the family my family?
I briefly noted this question shortly after it was posted, but did not have chance to respond, and was not at a computer at the time. But I thought, it's not urgent and I'm sure will be closed by the time I'm back.
But 10 hours later, the question is still open. It is as clearly opinion-based and off-topic and for this site as it gets. Not a single close vote, not even a downvote.
So why wasn't it closed promptly? There was not even a single close vote, despite a twice-upvoted comment indicating it was opinion-based (that probably should have been 3 close votes there). It had even been cleared from the First Posts review queue without any votes.
This is the sort of question that it would be nice for the community to vote to close, and shouldn't really reqire moderator intervention. I don't think there is much room for disagreement here that this isn't a good question for the site.
Why are people not using their close votes?
