I have been told many times "close is not a permanent state, it's just where questions go to be either editted/reopened or else deleted". However the dictionary says: "to bring to an end", "to conclude".
Well, why use the word "close" to mean something it doesn't in our language?
Wouldn't a more gentle term such as "pause" and "unpause" be better for the QA experience?
