I really like Stack Overflow but I have noticed a few changes that I don't agree with.
- Fun questions are now considered to be off topic.
I don't understand why this happened. Work should be fun.
- Asking for directions is off topic.
Sometimes you need to ask which tool/product/etc. would be useful ... because comparing tools is boring and costs a lot of time.
So could a moderator even affect the direction Stack Overflow takes?
