Why was this question about a SimplePie error message closed?

I just came across a discussion that was closed and I don't understand why.

A user named Neal posted the following comment:

"We are not a simplepie help desk..."

Neal and four other members promptly closed the discussion, the reason being that it's apparently "too localized".

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, see the FAQ.

Why are we not allowed to ask questions about SimplePie, even though Stack Overflow has the tag and the SimplePie website links to that tag?

Someone was nice enough to offer an answer to the OP's question as a comment, because the discussion was closed. So clearly this wasn't some obscure and confounding question the community was ill-equipped to answer.

Could someone explain to me what might be the reasoning behind the closure?

    The question was somewhat unclear, but nothing that couldn't be corrected with a simple edit.

    So I simply edited it. And then re-opened.

    EPA Official: S-sir, I'm afraid you've gone mad with power...

    Russ Cargill: Of course I have. You ever tried going mad without power? It's boring. No one listens to you!
