    Why would a genuine question be closed to answers by a moderator?

    I have an issue with my dogs and asked a question about how to stop this behaviour. I thought it was unusual I had not had any help from people here, as I know there are so many animal lovers.
    Why would a question asking for help and to keep dogs safe be closed by a moderator?
    There was nothing inappropriate about the question, no swearing and no explicit language. I do not understand.

    I have seen this myself. I don't understand either. But, Someone has to flag the question to get a moderator to look at it.

    Is there a way to object ? It has not been removed, merely closed. Site is buggy today but that can't be why.
    I have seen someone else's question appear in my feed 5 times, as separate questions. I also can not select comment to your answer here, I have simply had to answer again.
    Some thing is not right at the moment.

    Not that I've been here very long but, when I first started, I never visited the forums for a very long time.  What I learned was that certain types of questions should be posted in the forums rather than the Q/A section. 

    I had a question that was closed and I believe it was because it was a hypothetical question. However, I see hypothetical questions all the time so I'm not really sure.

    What I would do is just tryo to post the same question but word it differently.
