RFE: Automatically push closed questions to the bottom

Currently, when I see "all questions", all the recently closed questions appear first. These have been closed for reasons such as "duplicate" etc., and it doesn't make any sense to have them appear first. It would be more constructive to have these pushed to the bottom (or deleted altogether). Can something be done?

That means either "close" == "delete" or we'll have to monkey with the sort order, neither sounds good. I think that "closed" means "no more answers allowed", not that the post is hidden.

So why not just delete the most useless posts periodically. Maybe we could make tools in the future to help with this.

In the upcoming versions we'll have a lot more convenient data models for the various moderation features and the content management.

Comments is running version 0.7.9. I can't seem to delete questions here (I'm a moderator). Do we need to upgrade for this functionality?
