Several community members on PMSE have flagged questions recently where the question-asker polls the community in an attempt to locate software that solves a specific problem.
Below are some examples of questions that have been asked that, as some users point out, could probably be answered by searching the pm-software tag:
The answers are of course very similar and oftentimes contain the same links to the same resources, which is a strong indicator that they are polling questions. But aside from the fact that these are polling questions, which the StackExchange Management team would not consider great questions, how do you as members of the PMSE community feel about these questions?
At the moment, I plan to continue doing what I'm doing and leave a comment on questions that I personally view as possibly being off-topic. However, I personally don't plan to close them unless there is community support.
Many PMSE community members have 500+ reputation. These users have the ability to participate in driving the site by commenting on questions and even voting to close questions they feel are off-topic; however, I am not sure whether people are not using those because they feel the questions are great or because those community members aren't aware they have this privilege.
