A user just pointed me at our sidebar. It shows related questions and she wrote the following, complaining why her plugin recommendation-question was closed as off topic.
ok, I dont want to sound like a b**** but I've seen lots and lots of questions answered when people ask for tools, libraries and off site resources. I am even looking at some here at the related sidebar....
She is right with one thing: We made those things off topic a long time ago. What we haven't managed (because of the lack of wo|menpower) is closing all of them. But she also pointed me at another interesting thing. Namely it's using the "related questions" sidebar to hunt down those questions. It's really an excellent and highly accurate tool for this task, as the SE/SO network developers have spent quite some time and brain power developing it.

Just search up one or two plugin recommendation questions. Search queries like
will work. And then the "related" sidebar widget already kicks in, delivering you targets.
Task: Flag and downvote (or if you got the capability: close vote) 5 questions. It will probably just take you 30 seconds, but you will do a big job for this site - and also for the relevance of your search results.
Hint: Down voting questions doesn't cost you reputation.
