Why was Where can you rent watercraft to explore the 30,000 islands in Georgian Bay? closed, when it resembles these questions?
I was one of the voters. Terribly sorry. From my view, it looks like a question where the only factual answer that could be acceptable is the name of a company that rents watercraft. The answer would be treated as an endorsement, something like trip adviser, and this site has a very strong pull with search engines.
Hence, the site has a rule that shopping questions are off-topic.
You have pointed to some questions very similar to yours and ask why they are not closed also. The answer is that the site, like all SO sites, is self regulating and the regulating surface is massively uneven. There are inconsistencies, and it's part of 'what is'.
I have had questions closed and can attest that it is an unpleasant experience, but that's the way the community operates. You can try to edit it such that the single correct factual answer is not the name of a company and then reopen it.
