I was told lately that in somebody opinion "list of something and why" does not belong to SO. Well in my opinion they do but that is up to community to decide so I'm asking:
- Do questions of type "please list existing technologies to solve this problem and the reasons why to use/not use some of them" belong to Stack Overflow?
- If they do not belong there where to which other SO site they do belong ?
- Or they should not asked ?
I was also told that they might belong to programers, but I don't really see the difference between SO and programers (consider this a subquestion). Why was it created ? In my case it just confuses me - I don't know where to put my questions.
Here is the link to the relevant question at SO.
EDIT: Yes, I do think that the question asking for the most fitting technology should be asked with particular problem in mind and that problem should be described there. Or at least some criteria or needs for the technology should be provided (maybe you do not wish to state the problem or you might have needs depending on your skills...).
