I can understand that it's good to let low-scoring older questions bubble back to the surface, in case there is new information, or someone has a new angle: but there often seem to be a lot of very old questions on the front page of the site.
Often these just have "modified 16 mins Community", but I can never find what that edit might be. Is that just spam removal?
Do old questions ever get 'archived'? (At what point do questions about OS X Panther become Retrocomputing?)
Do 'low-quality' questions-and-answers (e.g. someone never responds to a Q, and low scores all round) ever get pruned from the site?
I often start typing an answer and then realise it's about someone's hard drive 7 years ago. Yes, I suppose I could click on "Questions" instead.
And I can understand that some little nugget of info might be the very info needed by someone searching for answers.
I suppose I'm just thinking out loud that the 'signal-to-noise' is sometimes high. (Or is that low?)
Can we vote to close questions on grounds of being old and unimpressive?
