A great reason for a popular list like this is if a person doesn't
know what they are looking for, or they do but their searches are not
producing other options, the list can provide those other helpful
resources.   I've done this, too.   I either ask about what I know and
see what options people give that even searching wouldn't have
normally revealed, or openly ask what I don't fully know about and
that can also lead to good answers - even if google and other search
engines provide answers.   Sometimes search engines just don't produce
what someone is looking for - but people do, or can help.

Finally, it can be helpful to have a human response from a list to
validate the usefulness of something found - is it good/legit, or
problematic (old, malicious, whatever).

Just my experiences.   Human communication is still key (like this list).
