I see some questions in the \"Terms help\" section that hang there, \"open\" since last September! What\'s the use? They will be never picked up by the asker.

In fact, in my main language pairs, English>Greek, more than 50% of the terms are left \"open\" for a period more than 2 weeks to .. more than one year. I guess their askers neglect them. Or, worse, they do their job by looking at the answers but do not pick one so that no KudoZ are distributed.

However, translators lend their time to answering to those questions!

So, I suggest that these terms be removed and their askers be warned about the matter.
