so easy to abuse as an excuse for deleting legitimate content.

I agree.

If it's old news it'll get downvoated.

I disagree. I have the impression that a lot of old stuff is upvoated because they're relevant, not because they're current.

Rule 3 is also unnecessary. Archives are screenshots of websites. Images can be newsworthy content. Users will decide with voats.

If one could archive screenshots directly through a trusted third party (like how archive sites downloads the site directly from the source, you don't upload the site to the archive) your argument would make sense.

Screenshots (of today) have no accountability, there's no way to verify that what you're seeing even comes from the page it looks like. Screenshots are worthless as reliable news providers.
