I have noticed, that there were some threads on this topic in the past, such like this one: My problem with the closing brigade
I did not fully read those questions, but I think there is something wrong with it in a pretty fundamental way.
In the past weeks I was banned two times for a few day from any review queue, because I did not vote to close questions. Thats what I wrote about here: Why does it take 5 close votes, to close a question?
The thing is, that I started to mindlessly vote to close questions. Seriously, I do not invest any noteable time what so ever into these close votes. I just make sure I do not run into an audit.
What has happend? Nothing. I just smash the close button and no one seems to bother. I do this for the past 4-5 days now.
When I reviewed with my humble opinion, I was banned in a blink. And now, that I really do not care anymore, everything is fine?
I think there is something really wrong here. Espacially with my banns in the past and I think that the 'rules' what makes a question close worthy, should be adapted in some way.
Often you see questions which got closed, which have some favorites, a decent amount of upvotes and completly fine answers (often not even just one answer), so what is the point in closing these questions? I do not understand.
In the first link I gave there was spoken about an 'unfriendly welcome' to new users, and that is what I think too.
Closing a question is just rude. I do not say, that no question should be closed, but I am pretty sure, that 4 out of 5 closed questions do not deserve to be closed.
So again, I might ask:
Why does it take 5 close votes, for a question to be closed, when I can just vote to close every single question and no one seems to care about it?
