I asked this question earlier, in which I described a problem I didn't have the answer to and finished off by asking whether there was an industry standard solution for this problem.
In essence the question could be reduced to "here is what I need to do, I don't know where to start, can someone give me a push in the right direction?". I was specific about the problem domain and wasn't asking for someone to do it for me, I was asking for help from someone who has knowledge and/or experience in the same problem domain.
What I wasn't asking for was "resources", unless that encompasses help with a problem, in which case there's a considerable amount of questions on this site that should be closed down.
What got me about the edit was that instead of being constructive, the editor removed the final line of the question which actually described what I hoped to gain from asking on SE, and added nothing constructive, turning my question into a description of a problem.
So if asking for help with a specific problem domain is frowned upon on here, then that leaves me confused about a) what this site is actually for (and don't tell me to take the tour or RTFM, because I have, and frankly very few edits I have had made to my questions have been to bring it in line with a specific point made in there, implying the larger community cannot agree on the purpose of this site), and b) what am I supposed to do? If I delete the question that counts negatively towards my ability to ask further questions on this site, but clearly asking where to start is "encouraging requests for resources".
It's almost as if the mechanics of SE reward nitpicking and games of "who can find any straws to clutch at first" over constructive criticism and useful editing.
