I have seen more than a few people writing a comment which starts with “Before the question gets closed” when they can predict that the question will be closed. I cannot understand what it means because we can post comments after the question is closed in the same way as before it is closed if I am not mistaken. What is it supposed to mean?
I think it just stems from the mistaken belief that one cannot comment after a question has been closed. I used to think that too, before I saw it being done recently. Actually now I'm not too sure what closing does actually.
On a related note, I don't think we should answer questions "before they get closed." What was the point of closing the question if someone answers it anyway?
