The problem is whilst they were ruled to be on topic they are essentially a poor loophole to just being a list question which are off topic. These types of questions almost always receive several answers that are “yes, here’s one ...

Your comment flags on that question were handled by two different moderators. I didn't handle the flag on the first comment and I'm not a subject matter expert on Harry Potter so I have no comment regarding that flag.
