There was a time—a dark, dark time—in which there were no standard loopholes. Since we began classifying certain things as loopholes and banning their use, the overall quality of the content on this site has improved. However, answers from the Dark Ages remain, answers which violate loopholes but predate the introduction of loopholes, so at the time they were posted they were not breaking any rules.
Should our standards of quality apply retroactively? That is, what should we do with these old answers that now violate loopholes but didn't when they were posted? Some options I can think of offhand are
- Flag and/or delete
- Lock popular ones for historical significance
- Should we leave them all alone
Surely there are other possible courses of action as well. Thoughts?
