> It's just that most of us don't care of issues.

I don't agree with that statement. :wink:

If you want to keep the stance that *every* issue opened has to be fully resolved or declared non-existant, well, then we cannot automatically close issues.
IMO that is not practical. Issues that noone saves from staleing after *two* warnings and 7 months of inactivity are by definition no _pressing_ issues.
Issues that are important jump into your face, they cannot get forgotten.

Just looking at the last three issues:

#10937: feature request that noone seems to be willing to work on.
#9631: "not so nice" (slight inefficiency, no real problem) that noone seems to be willing to work on
#208: feature request that noone seems to be willing to work on

What do we gain by keeping issues like #9631, "X can be optimized"?
Are people gonna be bored and look through these?

What do we gain by keeping issues like #10937 #208 (feature requests)?
Do people get bored and look through what features were requested and start implementing them?

Staleing those is totally alright in my opinion.

> Hiding problems is very different from fixing them.

Cannot argue with that, but we have to include the definition of "problem" into this discussion.
