It is your assumption (and not more) that no response means no one looks  
at it. There are in fact more reasons than just "no one cares" which lead  
to no one responding to an issue. Which? Just think about why _you_ don't  
respond to every issue on bugs at . You'll see the same phenomenon in other  
projects too, even where it's "properly monitored".

No, the prevailing thought is to leave bugs open which might still be  
present (and thus not confirmedly solved or obsolete), and not just close  
them by age. If you know a bug that is obsolete or solved, feel free to  
close it.
