- on-hold for being "too broad"
Please help me to understand which is the difference between the two questions because I can't see any.
Personally, I disagree with the close and thus have voted to reopen.
What happened is Robert, being an employee, "hammered" it closed (i.e. normally 5 votes are needed, his counts for all 5 and he single-handedly closed it).
His thinking was most likely that "big list" questions aren't allowed, and that your question was one. I disagree, and as we've seen 'what are the health benefits' questions can be okay.
Questions like these are very broad by definition. There's nothing inherently wrong with the question itself, but this is more a talking point into a much larger discussion or debate than something that can be definitively "answered" in what we typically call Q&A.
Users can guess at what type of information will help you specifically, but without a specific problem statement, users will tend to post random bits of information and anecdotes that touch on the subject — and maybe you can pick through the answers later and find something useful, relevant, or entertaining…
except that isn't the purpose of creating a Stack Exchange site.
Stack Exchange is supposed to be a collection of solutions to the problems users actually face in this space every day. We accomplish that through a unit of information we call Q&A. The best, most "correct answer" on that subject is supposed to rise to the top — complete, definitive, and at least somewhat rankably answerable as "most correct".
Long story short, Stack Exchange is supposed to be a Q&A and not a discussion forum. The problem with "let's talk about this big subject in one post" is that folks will see fit to closing much more useful, detailed questions as a duplicate of this one later. Maybe that doesn't happen, but that IS how this is supposed to work.
