Maybe because people reading it do not know what context is. I have seen post on reddit not understanding that answer was written in 2015 and treating it like it was written yesterday.

Could you tell me what it used to say? I do find the answer by Joe Duarte compelling,
 Edit on April 23, 2016: I'm not as confident in D after seeing 
 how the maintainers have rejected improvements to the language. 
 D doesn't have a large installed base out in the world, so 
 their reluctance to make breaking changes seems misplaced – D's 
 only real long-term play is adoption from new users, so 
 focusing on not perturbing incumbent users is strange.
As a new user I've already found 2/3 issues that seem to me like the should have been added 3 years ago, but they have been postponed since 2018 & 2019, without any activity since.
