Meta questions about mainsite questions asking for lists or likely to generate list-answers.

There's much discussion on meta about list-questions and list-answers, and a lot of conflicting statements: "list questions are a form we discourage," "lists are fine, it's links that are the problem," "voting breaks on lists," "maintenance is a problem on lists," "maintenance is fine, and CW makes it even easier," &c. &c. &c.

At some point we need to sort out where we actually stand on lists; this tag makes it easier to find all the previous discussions and is a zeroth step in that direction.
