I understand all subservices of Stack Overflow, except the Meta one. Do I post requests, faq-like questions or do I just vent my happiness/dissatisfaction with the services?

I noticed, most questions are "feature requests", thus - what is the reasoning behind posting answers?

Maybe an edited version of my question could end up inside the faq?

Why do we need this site?

The FAQ on all sites explicitly disallows meta-discussion, to reduce clutter and noise.

Also, try to refrain from asking questions about this website itself unless you absolutely, positively have to. People don’t come here to learn about the intricacies of this website; they come here to get answers to their questions. Let’s try to help them out by not cluttering up the system with navelgazing meta-discussion. If you want to suggest a feature or discuss how the website works, visit our meta site.

This frustrated many members of the community who had perfectly legitimate reasons to ask questions about how and why the websites worked the way they do. We needed to provide an outlet for this activity, a separate place where community members could go for sanctioned meta-discussion. And here it is!
