The community has decided that shopping questions aren't a good fit for the site.
Every once in a while, a straight-up shopping question pops up that is still lurking around from the bad ol' days. It seems that people are reluctant to vote to close these. My guess would be that this is because they feel that the question is "grandfathered in," or something like that.
My feeling is that we should either close them, or lock them with the "this question exists for historical reasons but shouldn't be considered a good example" text.
What do you think?
