TheMadScientist, I agree with you.But people have to be careful in not returning a 410 for pages that have obtained substantial number of external links.
They may have obtained those links, despite being thin content pages, as they give away the answers straight. But, google seem to be not favoring those pages any more because they are thin pages.
So, one has to think about working on them to make the story longer :)
