Lately I've noticed several older questions (some as many as two years old) that are being flagged as off topic and are in the queue to be closed.
I don't understand this? Why would we waste our time on questions that are so far off of the front page that we wouldn't even have to see them if they weren't being flagged?
Further, perhaps more personally, it bugs me because these questions were easily considered on topic at the time (way back when we were still trying to define ourselves.) Many of them have a dozen upvotes or so and many have a few really good and useful answers on them. It would be questionable to close them today since they seem to be useful to someone (and, in a general sense, are about aviation an airline operations).
So can someone please explain to me who is trying to get all of these questions closed down two years after the fact? I think there are better uses for the review queue than this... Not sayin', just saying.
