What Happened to “What Stack Overflow is Not”?

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?

The big grey box tells you why your question was closed. Comments (like this one) only express the opinion of a singe user. Also you're confusing closed and deleted. – Some Helpful Commenter Jul 10 '12 at 20:32
