Description

A while back, I submitted
https://connect.microsoft.com/Connect/feedback/details/739942/problems-accessing-old-items-from-ladybug
and it was closed as fixed. And indeed the symptom I reported no longer exhibits. However, when I hover the mouse of one this items, the tool-tip text says "Voting is no longer enabled on this item", and indeed I can't vote despite if I'm signed in.

I realise that this may be due some limtation with the handling of the old Ladybug entries, but since I have a an article on my web site that refers to these articles, and encourage people to vote for them, I would appreciate a clarification.

I am dismayed to discover Microsoft can and do disable voting on Connect items.
