    Why weekly mail highlights already answered old  questions?

    I often find in my weekly mail from HubPages that  'already answered with best answers' questions are being highlighted with the button "answer this". When I land to the question, I find that it already got the best answer and many more answers and is almost a closed issue now. Then, asking us to answer it is very silly and annoying.
    I think, the button for such things should be not for "answer this". Instead, you change button as "view this".

    I have just received one exactly like what you say. 
    I go back to what I said before.  Too many tasks are automated and not monitored.  Maybe lacking staff?

      I forgot to mention earlier that Facebook has been doing that for weeks now. I have just received notification of a post I replied to in January!! LOL!!  Must be the same software.

      They should monitor at least these weekly mails and accolade messages. It takes only a few minutes, if not seconds, to check such petty things. It is very awkward seeing such things- asking to answer old questions or to learn how to write stellar hub

    Sorry, I have to repeat it again. I didn't see anybody noticed this except MarieLB. It is not cleared yet why these questions are highlighted with the green button to "answer this", whereas there are already best answers and many answers on that thread making it complete and closed issue.

      Hi V.M.  What is happening here?  I am thoroughly confused.  I thought only you can control the string, but what you say makes me think different.
