    Yes it is OK. Some questions still out there waiting for an answer could be one that other people care to know the answer to. We remove the questions that no longer matter as we see them. We get to them when we can.

    See my response at the end of comments. I didn’t see you up there in the blue.

    I saw it. I had to remove it as you used the answer box and not this comment box ;)

    You're welcome.

    Itsmee, I mostly answer year old questions because as I've been told, Admin wants every question answered.  There also is no Rule against answering questions that have been answered priorly no matter how old they may be.

    I do answer the old one but I always wonder. Thank you.

    I answer older question because sometimes I flat out can't answer the newer ones............

    This isn't Colleen, but it seems like it's OK, because they keep coming up.  Certainly, many of them aren't relevant to the person asking anymore, but the question is open, so it must be OK. Is it PRACTICAL?  

    itsmee

    I really like to read them. I know they keep coming up. Sometimes I’ll answer one and then realize it’s, uh, rather old.

    It's tempting to get a little crazy with those, but I try to be scholarly and responsible. Key word:TRY

    Our oldest and most frequently asked questions openly demonstrate their use and value. 

    itsmee

    Indeed they do. : )
