We have a number of questions that float up to the top of the queue every month or so. This is the latest one: Help needed on method to use for anomaly detection.
But some are zombie questions (like the one linked): which means that
- the question had some issues, and comments were given on how to refine it
- the question was left open so as to allow time for the OP to fix the question.
- the original questioner disappeared or neglected to bother engaging with the commenters
- the question floated down due to inactivity, and then popped back up thanks to Community.
I'd like to propose that we close these questions. I'm NOT proposing that we kill all community-reset questions, but only ones that have the above characteristics. Since closing is reversible, I'm proposing that we treat such questions as if they were just posted and the OP ignored the suggestions, which would normally lead to close votes.
