I'd prefer not to remove the stale results from the pages
1) There are platforms for which the results are updated on a weekly
2) Even if the results are in fact stale, they often serve as a
reminder to the corresponding runner and, more importantly, the
reports' audience, who are more likely to bug the former about
bringing them up-to-date.
I'd have no problems with implementing the original feature request,
