A good point.
I personally hate it when I go read an article online and no date is
attached to its release. I assume the argument is as above: "If we never
update it, it'll look ancient and stagnant!" So my personal bias is to
understand "Hey, some information may not have been updated for 2 years,
but that doesn't mean that it's wrong!"
Ideally, content reviewers can occasionally look at an article (like the
one I cited), say "Yup, it's still valid.", and press a "Reviewed as OK"
button in whatever CMS backend may or may not exist. The article would
Last Updated: 12/7/2003
Last Reviewed: 7/2/2006
And those young ADD whippersnappers could say "Hrm...OK, that's a recent
date, I'm happy."
