What on Earth could people justify the existence of stale bot?

    If you're talking about the thing I think you're talking about, then if an issue hasn't been picked up for 30+ days for example, it's likely it will never be picked up.

    @C0D4 If you are talking what I think you are talking, https://github.com/moby/moby/... is a really good candidate to force a stale close.

    I have complex feelings about closing stale issues.

    On one hand, if an issue has been open for three years, you might as well close it since it's not getting fixed. On the other, finding out that a bug you recently discovered was reported three years ago and then closed a year later without resolution is really upsetting.

    Part of the value of an open issue is to let people know what’s going on.

    Stale bot marks issues as stale when the maintainers themselves are the one actually went stale.

    This is some real corporate methodology here.
