This question is similar, but my question here concerns handling old questions.
A new link-only answer has been posted to this question asked in June 2012. At the time of posting this question there are 934 views and five answers that are links and little explanation. There is one comment, and it also just provides a link to software.
The question appear to be off-topic as it asks for recommendation on software. The answers appear to be wrong because they are just links.
As this question is nearly two years old, it may have been flagged already and been deliberately left as useful. How can learn the history of this question and hence whether I should flag it? Or should I just flag the question ignoring its history?
