What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 128 Stack Exchange communities.

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 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 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... –  Lukasz Jan 29 at 11:06
