I'd like more information as to why a question deemed Localized is grounds for closing.
I find the notion somewhat disturbing since the target of the question is irrelevant as long it is on topic. On many programming forums (or user forums if we drive a parallel to Super User where this question was also closed for the same reason) I must say, in near 20 years, I cannot remember a question ever being closed by its moderators on grounds of being "too localized".
Another thought: On both cases, before the question was closed, apparent valid or useful answers were given, which does show the ability of the forum users to provide valuable information on this type of questions. This displaces the notion this type of question may not find any interest, or may not be answerable.
Finally, I cannot see any information on the FAQ with "Localized" as a type of question to avoid.
