A lot of us post questions on Proz.com for other colleagues to find the appropriate answers. Many translators pay due attention to grading the answers as a way of expressing thanks for others' efforts but unfortunately there are some people who ignore grading answers. Such people always leave their questions open. I found somebody leaving about 400 questions closed without grading! There should be a disciplinary action against such people. What do you think?

This is what the KudoZ FAQ says:

"If you have ten (10) questions that have received valid answers and have been open for more than a week, you will not be allowed to ask further questions. Please grade and close these questions to continue asking." - http://www.proz.com/faq/2812#2812

BUT, here's a (very old) thread about this: http://www.proz.com/forum/kudoz/100261-proposal_for_open_question_limit_staff_already_exists-page2.html

Especially this post from staff: "I have investigated similar cases and found that most of the "open questions" had no answers, or all answers had been declined. The limit on open questions does not apply in these cases (no valid answers)." - http://www.proz.com/forum/kudoz/100261-proposal_for_open_question_limit_staff_already_exists-page2.html

At any rate, it seems rather extraordinary that someone might have "declined" and/or received no reply to 400 questions...
