I've looked at some late answers/first posts and their timelines, and it seems the answer is 'no'. As you can see in this image, the review for first post was done before the one for late answer, ...

Should I answer questions which have accepted answers?

While reviewing "The Late answers" should we compare it to other answers?

If you are going to give a positive review (No Action Needed or vote up) then yes, you need to check other answers to make sure that it is not plagiarized. In this case it is also worth to check other ...
