Recently one of my SO questions was closed because it was said to be asking for a recommendation. The first comment with 2 upvotes said "Stack Overflow is not a recommendation engine."
Doing some googling of the phrase, I found only this link to the purported ST Meta policy "Stack Overflow is not a recommendation engine."
However, the page presently displays this message:
This question was removed from Meta Stack Overflow for reasons of moderation. Please refer to the FAQ for possible explanations why a question might be removed.
Am I looking at the wrong link? Why has it been closed? Is the policy still being debated? Was the debate too contentious and the question removed on account of this?
