I'll probably contact people individually about this, but let it start here. Moving forward, please allow other users to answer old questions. If they give a bad answer on a six year old question, feel free to downvote them and comment to them what they did wrong, but please allow them to answer. If they're answering old questions with a link to something like their blog, then that's spam, please feel free to report that, but anything else, no need to report or chastise.

I think a lot of times people are coming to old questions and they just aren't seeing that they're old questions. They just want to help and then they have a bad experience when they do. I think allowing people to answer old questions will be more inviting, and I think downvoting bad answers will be sufficient.
