This question arises from the discussion on OpenScience and Academia Q&A sites. In particular, looking at the possibility of migrating some questions from OpenScience to Academia, one could ask which questions from OpenScience would be off-topic in Academia (or would have no home at StackExchange at all).
It happened that "Receiving comments on one's article" was not received well on Academia and was put on hold as a shopping question. That's why I'd like to ask whether the policy with respect to shopping questions may be revised.
For example, Math.SE has a tag big-list for similar questions, many of which perhaps would be viewed as "Shopping" here, and it's quite common on Math.SE to mark those questions as community wiki.
Maybe Academia's guidelines on what's considered shopping and what not could be revised to be more tolerant to "big-list" questions (if they are not asking for lists of individual universities, academic programs, etc. of course)?
