I was trying to respond to a comment from the OP on this question today. I was about to point him to the FAQ to say "shopping list quesions" and "computer hardware questions" are explicitly forbidden in the FAQ, but I noticed they were not mentioned directly at all.
I guess my question/request is should these prohibitions be added to the FAQ?
I realize that the FAQ does cover what to ask quite well and no where does it come close to suggesting that hardware questions are acceptable nor is there a mention of shopping lists (like there is on SuperUser's FAQ). But given the fact that the OP seemed to think this was perfectly on-topic, maybe the FAQ should be updated?
