I find that there are many questions which are marked as Unanswered but when checked , are usually ones of homework questions where a user comments the OP's mistake and the problem is solved .
Shouldnt these questions be deleted as no external user will find it useful ?

    $\begingroup$ Also, if you find HW questions that are just about finding a mistake and have not been closed, I encourage you to flag them for closing. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Note that general Flagging requires 15 rep while Flagging for closure requires 50 rep. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Under the appropriate circumstances closed questions will be automatically deleted. I would guess this will catch most questions closed as homework. $\endgroup$ Mar 2, 2015 at 7:10
