From microsoft's response to visual studio user/customer requests:
Quote:
We find that around 15% of the suggestions are challenging to act on, and they typically fall into the following buckets.

11% – Closed as duplicate
3% – Closed due to missing info from customer
1% – Closed because they were not suggestions for Visual Studio

My take from this: if requests are too hard might involve even a little real work:

1. wait until 2 people have asked the same question - close as duplicates.
2. something missed in the request? "shouldn't there be a comma there?" - closed.
3. did we ever say it would do that? yeah but exactly like that? No? - closed.
....
OK people, all those closed requests, please push them off the table straight into those [trash] buckets over there.
Wait! on second thoughts leave some behind in case other people ask for the same thing again.

so what's left? just this one?

someone requested a new icon? right! this we can do, let's go team, we've got work to do.
