I came across
this question today. It's marked as off-topic because:
"This describes a problem that can't be reproduced that seemingly went
away on its own or was only relevant to a very specific period of
time. It's off-topic as it's unlikely to help future readers."
Given how many of our questions deal with a bug that's since been fixed, I'm wondering if we should do the same?

Interesting idea. An 'obsolete' category might be preferable since a bug-related question may not have been 'off-topic' at the time it was asked. Unfortunately SE only gives us 'duplicate', 'off-topic', 'unclear', 'too broad' and 'opinion based' so 'off-topic' may be the best available choice.
