I have come across a few questions that are already closed but have an accepted answer. Being relatively new here, I'd thought I'd ask this question.
My question comes from the fact that the question has too scant details for a normal question and answer (as per guidelines), thus invoking the close votes. Yet, despite that, it is answerable (as can be seen from the fact that there is an accepted answer.
One of the questions I have voted to close myself, which resulted in my consideration of voting to reopen, but I am not sure.
There are of course repercussions - being unsearchable is one (I'm not familiar enough to know if there are more) and perhaps a small detail is all that's needed for a potential asker to link it to their memory to search for a similar (and scantly detailed) question.
