    This question already has an answer here:

    Questions like



    are getting closed as being off topic or non-constructive or for other ridiculous reasons. These questions are often well defined and looking for a tool that solves one specialized problem for which such a tool is difficult to find by search.

    It always pisses me off (and I bet others too), because it is not "constructive" only in the Stack Overflow terminology because the community doesn't wanna deal with some questions leading to flames or possibilities of many tools fitting the description.

    I can see the reasons why these question are not desired on SO, but I'd expect the Stack Exchange network to create a site focused on these questions as as far as I know, it's currently impossible to get these questions answered elsewhere than IRC/twitter/etc. which is ridiculous considering the SE network already exists and the only barrier is social, not technical or even sensible.
