That's it.

I don't expect every article to have been published or updated today. But if I visit a page like, oh, https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-download-and-install-firefox-mac and it was written in 1996 I'm going to give it different credence compared to an article written in 2016.

Thanks, bygabyga.

Yes that helps. Thanks.

However, your suggestion has the element of "secret guru's business" about it. Had the solution been "obvious", I would not have grumbled.

It seems to me that if the information is accessible, it ought to be trivially simple to include "Last updated: Jan 20, 2016, 1:46:00 PM" just above or below the headline.

This would immediately make ALL articles much more useful.
