A question gets closed when it is rejected or when it is sent back to editing. Spam questions are rejected on sight in the hopes that no one will see them in the first place, let alone respond. Questions that need editing are also sent back upon discovery, which sometimes happens before anyone else has answered. That a discussion is closed, though, doesn’t mean that it will never be open again. It all depends on whether the asker chooses to edit or not.

What he ^^ said.

If it was just sent back for editing, the question will say it’s closed while it’s in editing. It may or may not come back, depending on whether it gets edited (properly) or abandoned by the asker.

Because I’m the one who asked it. It’s a conspiracy!
