Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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 stumbled upon an old question with an equaly old answer, which is totally useless (or just not an answer). Should I still flag this answer, with a comment for moderation? Is there a time limit, to how far back answers/questions should be flagged?

Yep. People coming in from Google won't initially know that the posts are old, and may not care even if they notice. They will care about quality, though. Fight cruft everywhere!
