Here was a reasonable question from a completely new user with 1 reputation, which just happened to have been anticipated 4 years ago with a completely different phraseology: Is it possible to fully analyse, at least some openings of chess?
No welcome, no sorry, just the silent moderator goes in with the [closed] hammer. And three people vote it down. One of them at least (not sure about the timings of the other two) voted down after the question had been closed. To view it, this person must have close/reopen privilege. It's not some visitor did that: it's some person within our community who fully relishes the enjoyment that can be derived by downvoting someone with 1 reputation.
Chess Stack Exchange is far from being the nastiest Stack Exchange site, but still I find this behaviour disgusting. I've gone beyond a point of expecting the moderators here to behave in a kind way with newcomers, but until the happy day when downvoting is removed completely from Stack Exchange, can we in Chess Stack Exchange at least prevent a closed question from being downvoted further?
EDIT: I should say that on this occasion I completely agree that closing the question is absolutely the right action. My beef is with the cold manner and the downvotes
