I've put a hold on this question:
It strikes me as something we want on the site, but as worded, it's far too vague to be searchable IMO.
We don't have a specific ban on software-recommendataion questions, but the general advice from Stack Overflow is still helpful to me in deciding when to step in and pause a question:
Questions asking us to recommend or find a tool, library or favorite off-site resource are off-topic for Stack Overflow as they tend to attract opinionated answers and spam. Instead, describe the problem and what has been done so far to solve it.
This question could easily be reopened if there is an actual problem being solved. If so, let's edit it to describe the problem and then document what has been done so far to solve it.
If it's meant to be a subjective question, it might need some significant tightening of scope. From our help center:
- every answer is equally valid: “What’s your favorite ______?”
- your answer is provided along with the question, and you expect more answers: “I use ______ for ______, what do you use?”
- there is no actual problem to be solved: “I’m curious if other people feel like I do.”
- you are asking an open-ended, hypothetical question: “What if ______ happened?”
To relate those words to the post in question. It seems like the following is happening:
- What's your favorite diagnostic tool for Mac?
- It's not actually stating a tool, but the answers read like what I would expect if someone posted "I use AHT for diagnosing Mac, what do you use?"
- I think a more precise statement of what problem needs diagnosis, this could be reopened rapidly with an edit and then cleaning the commentary and answers that are now obsolete / not relating to the actual problem
Basically, it seems a community discussion of an open-ended "diagnosis" topic.
