Similarly to Discrepancy between help-center and community consensus? my latest question was judged to provoke opinion based answers and therefore clashing with the "definitions for this site in the help center".
I specifically read and tried to follow: How should I ask about getting a software recommendation? while phrasing this awkward question, hence the less than optimal title.
If the question in question does indeed not follow the rules according to the current community:
- are software recommendations now illegal across the board?
- are help center and/or meta in dire need of reconciliation?
Since an indeed helpful comment suggested to put this into meta:
What takes precedence: help center, meta?
