This discussion recently popped up on Active Questions because of a new answer.
Ever since then, there have been EOL flags in the Close Vote queue for questions that were not EOL when asked; there are some from 2015, 2012, 2011, etc. None of these flags should have been cast, but I believe that discussion being revived may have had something to do with it.
For instance, this review item, about upgrading from 11.10 to 12.04, was flagged as EOL. It was asked May 14, 2012, and was very much on topic then.
Here are some other examples:
There are more, but I think that is enough.
If a question about a (now) EOL release was asked when that release was still supported, please don't flag it as EOL. It's pointless, incorrect, and just clogs up the already congested Close Vote queue.
There seems to be some misunderstanding (did I mislink a review?). If you find an old question without a very good (or accepted) answer, by all means, VTC or flag that. We might as well close it, since answers aren't really going to help anyone.
I am merely saying don't VTC/flag a question as EOL if it was not EOL at the time.
