This question is not a good fit to our Q&A format. We expect answers to generally involve facts, references, or specific expertise; this question will likely solicit opinion, debate, arguments, polling, or extended discussion. See the FAQ.
For example, https://stackoverflow.com/questions/337134/what-is-the-best-net-obfuscator-on-the-market was very useful for me since I am new to obfuscation and the question gave me a start. Also that question has lots of votes and bookmarks - these alone are the markers of usefulness. The question is closed anyway. No idea why.
Same happened to my question, https://stackoverflow.com/questions/7888081/net-obfuscation-deepsea-vs-crypto-obfuscator-which-is-better, which received one bookmark immediately.
I was waiting for an answer with the two products downloaded and installed. I desired that experienced people would share their thoughts and point me to the better one. No. Closed. I.e. I must go to some other forum and ask there or I must search on Google and write down the pros and cons of each myself. I am not asking questions just because I have tons of time and want to chat; I need an answer, that's why I am asking. I am asking because I think that SO has the most professional people to answer and because I didn't find a good answer in Google.
I saw other questions closed which I myself found to be useful and I bookmarked some of the closed questions.
If I want people who have an experience which I do not have with some software products and I want to see which product is better in the terms of usability and reliability, not just better in terms of the price or has a better official website or better described on the official website, how do I ask this question? Or is this a question which I cannot ask on SO? I.e. this sort of information is not available on SO?
Is this one breaking the rules as well: How should I declare pipelines? ?
