Stack Exchange sites are about getting expert answers, not for taking stabs at questions for which answerers do not have the sufficient knowledge to answer (i.e. because the event is rapidly changing).
Questions that ask about existing events should be considered on a case-by-case basis for the following:
- Is the event sufficiently notable that answers will be interesting in the future? If no, the question should be closed as too localized.
- Is the question even potentially answerable? If no, the question should be closed as not a real question.
In addition, answers should be considered on a case-by-case basis as to whether they actually answer the question. Guesses and speculation based on a lack of detail about the event are bad answers, and should be down-voted (or even removed). It's better to leave a question unanswered until it can be definitively answered than to provide a bad answers for the sake of answering it.
The alternative is for answerers, who don't have all the information but welcome others filling in the details, to mark their answer as community wiki. This significantly lowers the bar to contribute to providing a useful answer about an event, and is the closest analog to how Wikipedia handles current events. One person won't have a definitive answer about a current event, but potentially several people working together will.
