How should we feel about list questions? For example, there's already How can I protect equipment against a lightning strike? which seems to beg for incomplete answers at best (because I doubt anyone is going to sit down and list everything one can do to protect their radio equipment against lightning strike in a single answer), and is a shopping recommendation question at worst. In fact, there's already an answer on it that takes it from a shopping recommendation point of view.
No. Q&A is not the right format for list questions.
To quote the relevant part from this answer on Meta.SO
Generally, those questions are infinite, as a new answer could always be added; they also tend to be subjective. As such, those questions should not be asked, basing on what written in the FAQ.
I don't think it's possible to completely ban "list questions" simply because the potential meaning of "list question" is so broad as to cover a lot of things that probably could get quite a useful response out of the Q&A format. (You could ban a narrow definition, e.g. questions that specifically ask for a list, but that only affects a small subset of questions.)
If you restrict questions to only those which have a single empirically correct answer you tend to wind up with a site that ignores practice and focuses solely on theory, because only in theory do you really ever wind up with one clear "right" answer.
I think it would be better to focus on creating a community that avoids list answers and leaving the focus on questions to be whether or not they are too broad.
If have seen many list questions and answers on other SE site that worked and keep on working very well. Here is a nice example: "Comprehensive list of tools that simplify the generation of LaTeX tables." For this reason, I am a fierce proponent of open-ended list questions.
Not all useful information in the world can be poured into closed-form answers.
Furthermore, the idea of constantly editing to improve existing answers and adding new and better answers forms an inherent part of the philosophy of SE.
Examples as the one above demonstrate that this does not need to end in chaos as long as the question contains orchestrating instructions. A little editing of the original question by experienced SE users may help in such cases.
Finally, a topic as ham radio inherently generates less questions and answers than a broad SE topic such as, for example, computer system administration. It is not so (yet?) that our gear spits out error messages one after the other. SE as a company has not yet entirely grasped this inherent difference. See also "Is Stack Exchange vetting historically biased towards topics about syntax and semantics?" Therefore, it is in our interest to allow list questions and answers in order to pass our public beta minimum traffic requirements.
