Are purchasing recommendations allowable?
Here's an example:
Joe wants a new Android 3 tablet. He asks a question that says:
I'm in the market for a new Android 3 tablet. I want one with a 1GHz processor, a Gorilla Glass screen, a camera on the front, and it should have internal GPS.
How would you respond to Joe? Why?
I see this answer says 'No!', but I still see questions like this that have not been downvoted nor closed by a moderator.
More specifically, what types of purchasing recommendations are allowable? E.G. 'I want an X with Y, where would I find one?' or 'I want a cheap X, recommend me something' or 'I think X is a nice phone, but are there any cheap alternatives?'
