So, I was mailed about this. I'm not happy. In fact, I knew it wasn't anything good.
I was the one that voted to close that question as not reproducible, and I would do it again. The question has been asked 3 years ago, it isn't viewed by anyone (which is a metric some people love to use), and the answer is another regurgitation of "buy a better system or use something more light" which we don't lack.
These kind of Q&A's aren't useful since it drops the general quality of the site and, since we are in the process of burning the freeze tag, I took up the task. This tag needs to be removed someday, we discussed this several occasions. I'm more mindful about the inaction around this kind of issues, since the freeze reduce the visibility of questions, as is normally the only tag used or used with other problematic tags (like crash) that is like shooting ourself in the foot.
Everything has been done while being mindful of Shog's "When to burninate" guidance, specifically the "Start by cleaning up the edges" section, since the other procedure has already been completed.
This is not me mindlessly voting to close questions I don't like. You can check my review history and you will find some examples that I redeemed of questions badly tagged. I would ask instead turn this meta post in a plea for help, since when I hinted of my actions hopping a good kind soul would take up the challenge with me, nobody offered a hand, and I even found evidence of people going against this, since closing as duplicated wouldn't help to remove the tag.
I'm not even sure why the reviewers through it was EOL, and I'm kind of disappointed because I always have said "remove the references to the version of Ubuntu" to evaluate if a question is factually EOL. I'm not sure of the others EOL questions that you might be seeing. It would help if you show more examples to help you with your issue.
