Should questions that people suspect currently have no answer in the medical litterature be closed or left open?
Questions that people suspect currently have no answer in the medical litterature should be left open because:
- Maybe people missed some existing papers given that there exists over 25 million of medical research papers, and many are behind paywalls.
- We don't know when a new research paper will be published that may answer the question. Closing the question prevents users from answering the question, especially if the closure caused / was followed by a deletion.
