1. Are "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" and "Itsy Bitsy Spider" the same song?

  2. What is Bass and Treble?

I flagged these questions as "unclear what you're asking" (1st question) and "off-topic" (2nd question). However, a moderator had left both of the questions open and declined my flags.

I honestly don't know why they should be left open. The first question is definitely unclear because "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and "Itsy Bitsy Spider" are two completely different songs in the common sense and I could not understand the whole meaning of the question. The second one seems more of a Music P&T SE question rather than a Music Fans SE question.

For the first question, there was also a cross-site duplicate that I flagged but the same thing had happened. I honestly don't know what is going on.

Can we please close these questions?

    1. Both questions had 3 leave open votes in the queues so there's a pretty clear community consensus on both regardless if the last leave open was from a mod (me). 2. I don't know what the link you have on Music SE is supposed to represent. It has nothing to do with either question. – Dom Nov 22 '19 at 3:03
  • @Dom - that question was like "Dim chord and m7b5 chord is same... blah blah blah"... while they're not even the same chord at all. Not only that, the question was so unclear so I flagged to close it, but you left it open for no reason. And the same thing is happening here as well. – user7708 Nov 22 '19 at 3:35
  • @Dom - You seriously don't understand the cross-site dupe here? I mean, that question was unclear but you "leave open"-ed it that day when I flagged it for closure. – user7708 Nov 29 '19 at 11:20

    It has nothing to do with anything on this site. You think it should have been closed and 3 users include me as the last vote did not which is how the site function in general if a mod is involved not.. There's nothing else in common in theses questions. – Dom Nov 29 '19 at 14:37
  • @Dom - well, you think the cross-site dupe here didn't really warrant closure? The Cdim/m7b5 thing caused huge issues that spread all over the site and its per-site meta, and it even diseased me. Anyways, I scheduled my Music SE account for deletion. Can you delete it for me, please? – user7708 Nov 30 '19 at 6:10

    Please stop trying to bring Music SE topics up here. Your suspension here was directly for this and you seem to still be doing it and may be subject to further suspensions. Your account is still scheduled for deletion Music SE. I won't stop it or expedite it please let the system work the way it was designed as discussed here: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/5999/… – Dom Nov 30 '19 at 6:43
  • @Dom - I'm not bringing direct Music SE stuff here again. It's just... my account was not deleted right away... and it seems like it is going to take a long time for it to deleted. They say my deletion requires final approval from a CM or a mod before taken effect. Will they approve? Or reject? If you can delete it for me, I want you to do it right now. If you don't help, I think it is going to stay like this for a long time without any response to a CM or a mod. – user7708 Nov 30 '19 at 6:46

You have to remember that not all users on this site have a lot of musical knowledge. The answer to a question might be totally obvious to us, but it wasn't obvious to whoever posted it, so that is no reason to close it. Give a good answer if there isn't one already and move on to more interesting questions.

If do you flag a question for closure you have to accept the fact that other users (remember it's not just the moderators) might not agree with you. If I remember correctly I voted to leave both of those questions open. The first question was one of those naive questions I discussed in the first paragraph. The second one might be considered to be somewhat borderline on this site, but I'm not sure that Music SE would be a better place for it.
