Policy reconsideration in re leaving rep for older posts?
For example, I've done searches before... not for deals, but for information... and come across incredibly eloquent, helpful, in-depth (step-by-step) answers about xyz technology or program, that I wanted to give rep in order to say 'Thank you'.
Not an actual example I'm thinking of, but just hypothetically: an excellent explanation of how Amazon S&S, or Amazon Pantry, or some kind of Visa or Discover promotion or rewards program actually works.
Sometimes, the page on a company's website is incomplete (doesn't give enough info, and/or assumes you already know things you don't) or is misleading (makes their deal or program sound much better than it actually is).
So hearing 'the straight dope' directly from another SDer is often invaluable.
