There has been a strike recently of users flagging answers in very old posts as «not an answer». While I appreciate the intenintent of cleaning up —in-- in most cases the answers flagged are not actual answers—answers -- there is very little that can be done about this, specially in months old answers.

I think it does not make a lot of sense to devote energy to such a task... Maybe we should come up with a policy on this?
