Referring to Unable to understand a spoken word
This was mod-closed without voting. The closure reason was "off-topic" with an explanation from the mod that "the mystery phrase has been correctly interpreted in the first helpful comment." This is not one of the criteria for closure.
The comment contained a partial answer to the question. This was a genuine question but the hold prevents genuine answers.
See Questions with no answers but are answered in comments
If you see a question (a good question, which the example might not be) that has been fully answered in the comments, then it needs to be answered for real with an actual answer. This way the question no longer appears to have no answer from the Questions page, people can vote on the answer, and the answer can be accepted.
Mods should use their ability to close with voting to close questions that are very clearly off-topic, or clearly too broad, or opinion based. They should not close because the question has been answered in comments, or is too easy or the answer is too short. Closure should not be used as super-downvote.
