Resources questions are supposed to be off topic, we even have a specific close reason for resources questions.
However, there are a some questions which we have that specifically ask for resources and are even tagged with the resources tag.
Someone on here recently asked a resources question which is a fair enough request, but our policy says we don't want these types of questions mainly because the tools provided in the answers often go missing or are never updated etc.
The OP of the question above rightly asked why we allowed the other resource question and not theirs. I can only point to our site policy, but if that really is the policy why are the others allowed.
Is there a grey area here or is the resources thing a strict no? I just checked the section of our FAQ about resources and it seems to say resource questions are OK if they are specific.
It seems I have come full circle and even I am slightly confused... any suggestions?
