Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I sometimes come across such questions like that:

"Not a real question." (Change to "Not a valid question.")

The "Not a real question" close reason doesn't exist for long time. It doesn't make sense to answer, comment, or even up/downvote (since there's nothing more to vote for/against it).

Shouldn't such questions be locked as historical ones? Should I flag them for moderator attention or just ignore them?

[status-obsolete] or [status-deprecated] would be fine as tags, but these do not exist. Otherwise flag or close it as @AakashM indicates – Jehof Jan 29 '14 at 10:53
Duplicate What should we do with all questions related to accept rate?. But I am closing mine as it has no answer and is only asking for accept rate. – hims056 Jan 29 '14 at 11:18

The close reason

Off topic -> Can no longer reproduce Changes to the system or to the circumstances affecting the asker have rendered it obsolete. If you encounter a similar problem, please post a new question.

would seem to apply.

Closing the question will not prevent comments and voting, in that case meta-voting for obsolete feature... – Danubian Sailor Jan 29 '14 at 11:06
