I have had questions explicitly permitted, and certainly not prohibited by the FAQ closed multiple times. The most recent one, related to Ubuntu One (which can be found here)
Is permitted in the FAQ:
Services provided by Ubuntu
Any question not mentioned below or here are great! There are no "dumb" questions!
It seems to me that it was closed based on personal preferences rather than any legitimate reason. Why are people so strict regarding closing potentially legitimate questions and is there any recourse?
Also, why are close reasons not being explained via comment? Many people new to Ubuntu are asking questions and I think close votes should at least be explained to help users ask better questions in the future.
Is there a legitimate reason why my post was closed?
