Could there be a separate lists.se area
A number of times users ask open questions like...
- List of freely available programming books
- Hidden Features of C#?
- What is the single most influential book every programmer should read?
...that have multiple "good" answers, and have no one "right" answer.
For example questions that start with:
What is the best FOO?
What are some good FOOs?
What are the FOO elements of the set BAR?
These questions are against the current policy and as such are considered off-topic.

A new button,

Lists have a separate tab from
Questions, by placing a
