I've never seen any data that would support that...  You know something I don't?

I've certainly done my share of removing year old intentionally bogus
data from enwiki...

The fact is that once something has survived initial review on
watchlists and recent changes, the chances of it being fixed stay
fairly low.  (this comment based on the curve of ages of deleted
images, which have a spike around 7-10 days but assume a low and
uniform deletion probability after that)
