Intended non-use of software may have an impact on question applicability
The help centre notes:
You should only ask practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face.
A strict reading of the bolded phrase would rule out a question if you did not intend to use the software, as it would not be a[n] "actual problem that you face".
To apply this in every case would be an overly-harsh and narrow interpretation- in my own view.
That said, if a situation arose where it was clear that OP:
- made it clear they did not to intend to use the software they are asking about
- indicated they had some knowledge of the answer they posted the question about*
- by asking, promoted a product that has been frequently spammed
I would consider submitting a close vote.
This may seem unfair, but bear in mind that by posting a question you are asking folks to put in time and effort into researching, writing and posting an answer. If it seems like an answer isn't going to be useful to you, or to future readers, having it open to answers would not benefit the site.
*: If someone knows the answer to a problem which is solved, by all means post it as an answer to the question- self-answer questions are encouraged, if they will benefit other users
One close vote is in itself not a binding, binary decision on acceptability
As there is a bit of commentary in your question as to (forgive the paraphrase): how can someone possibly vote-to-close my question, 'that seems ridiculous', I will address that aspect too.
Meta QAs work best with concrete examples. In your case, you posted your question, it attracted a close vote, there was some discussion in the comments and in chat, and the close vote was ultimately retracted. This is the system working well.
At time of writing, your original question was:
While it can potentially be frustrating to receive a close vote on a question, it it worth remembering that it is not a commentary on you, the poster. Rather, it is an attempt to improve the question quality.
It can be worth seeing how things play out- your question did not garner any further close votes than the one it temporarily had, and it may have remained open.
