I think today is special, as it is exactly one month ago that stale-bot was activated. I agree with @kaspar030 that instances like this will be more spread out in the future, so we should not panic now about the workload of today, as it is just the work we have left behind for month, years even.

> Closing them because they are staled just means we put the dust under the carpet.

And keeping them open with nobody addressing them ever isn't? I quoted the argument by the stale-bot themselves already on [maintainers when we were discussing the introduction](https://lists.riot-os.org/mailman/private/maintainer/2019-August/001859.html), but I will link it again, as it is relevant to this discussion: https://github.com/probot/stale#is-closing-stale-issues-really-a-good-idea

> They will just be forgotten.

The fact that they are closed is only an indicator that they were already forgotten about IMHO.
