What's our stance on asking questions of the form "I looked for an overview of X for a while on google, and couldn't find it, anyone else have any luck?" or "I saw this article once about X, but now I can't find it; does anyone remember it?" On SO this sort of question is frowned on, but it seems like it may be more allowable here.
The main reason (that I can think of now) is that bio / medical information tends to be more scattered among (subscription) journals than e.g. physics or programming references. What do people think?
