Just in the last few hours a couple of questions about resources have been posted:
This one, asking for sources on technical writing, has been closed as Not Constructive. It is in fact a very broad question, and probably Off Topic (it might fly, however, on Writers.SE).
This one, however, is much narrower and specifically focuses on an aspect of English verbs. It has already received two closevotes as Not Constructive.
There has been considerable discussion of whether requests for resources will be welcome here; in addition to remarks in the course of answers to What should our FAQ contain? there are these:
- Are questions asking for resources on topic?
- Is this question on topic?
- Resources for learning English: should we have it at all?
It appears to me that there is considerable sentiment here for declaring questions about resources On Topic. I therefore ask:
Should we not avoid closing questions about resources until an authoritative statement has been included in our FAQ? (without prejudice, of course, to other reasons for closing)
