Why does WikiAnswers close every single question about their website?

They don't. But the questions seem to be a beacon for people that want to post bad comments, insults and other items that violate the Terms of Use of the web site. As an example the first answer to this question was nonsense. And it was posted by the person that asked the question. Which indicates that they were not serious about the question in the first place and simply wanted to abuse the site.

In order to prevent the abuse, some of the answers are protected by Supervisors. They are usually opened up after a few days, but further abuse will result in them being locked down again.
