If i write to a blog quite rarely, but with good quality content, i would remove the dates. If the posts are frequent i would use the dates in posts.

We date all of our blog posts. It is useful to visitors to know when a post has been published especially if the content is timely. It is frustrating to find an article or post that you might think is helpful, only to go down to the comment section and realize that it is two years old.

Yes, dating your posts is very important for your readers, especially if your article contains informational writes, the date of publishing these information is critical in some cases. Also i think search engines read the publishing date, so they can provide the searcher a date-specific search about the subject.

Did you read the whole thread before posting?

What about Evergreen content?

Why dismiss an article just because when it was originally published a bunch of people commented? I have found lots of useful information on such articles.
