I'm asking about this question:
How can one get their FICO/credit scores for free? (really free)
This question is quite old, having been asked almost 6 years ago. Today, after attracting a spamish answer from a new user, the question was closed. The reason given was that the question is "seeking product or service recommendations."
Is this question really seeking a product or service recommendation? It seems to me that the OP is asking how to get their FICO score for free. Answers to that question may or may not recommend a service, but the question itself is asking for a method, not a paid service.
I understand that some questions from early in the site's history that used to be on-topic are no longer on-topic; however, this one still seems to me to be on-topic. If it attracts spam from new users, it should be Protected, not Closed.
