We're already seeing some...colorful, fallout due to Microsoft forcing everyone off of the Hotmail interface onto Outlook.com.

Will it be worthwhile to go and close (most) questions as "Too Localized"? I mean, unless Microsoft reverses itself, they're not going to be helpful to any future readers.

    Can't we just leave them as they are. We don't seal books, pre-dating Copernicus´ time do we? We need to make sure that the bot doesn't poke them around anymore. Is that achievable? Jun 25, 2013 at 21:09

I would say that any questions that relate to switching back to Hotmail should be closed as a duplicate of this question.

For any other questions, I would be inclined to agree with you and close them as "Too Localized" (unless of course they could be edited or answered to conform to the new Outlook.com style?)

  • yeah but that would mean extensive rewrite of probably question & answer.. Mar 16, 2013 at 13:17
