What's the general SO stance on questions that ask for script recommendations? Be it jquery plugin recommendations, like this one, or those that involve other programming languages or criteria. I think the question that I linked to is too localized, but what if it was more generalized?
Do these kinds of questions fit into the criteria described in the FAQ?
- a specific programming problem - No
- a software algorithm - No
- software tools commonly used by programmers - Does packaged code count as a tool?
- matters that are unique to the programming profession - iffy
I found this question on meta : How do you feel about "Help me with this jQuery plugin" type questions?
It's close but not exactly what I'm looking for.
