Putting a question "on hold" is the same thing as closing questions. When I say they should not be closed, I mean they should not be put "on hold". I'm pretty sure that most of the users I've interacted with are the same.
This was in response to a comment where I said:
I think these questions should be put on hold until they can be fixed to not ask for the impossible.
This is not how I understood SE to work. The intent of putting a question on hold was that we could prevent the bad question from attracting answers that would make it impossible to edit the question to make it approriate, with out invalidating existing answers.
So is this community going to handle that differently than I have experienced on other SE Sites? Should we not try to put questions on hold so that they can be edited into shape before they get bad answers?
To be clear I am not asking to rehash the discussion from yesterday and simply looking to address the On-hold or not aspect.
TL;DR; Should we be putting questions on hold that are not currently of a quality to attract good answers, if they have the potential to be edited into good questions?
