I like Puzzling SE! Know why? Because I like stealing from getting inspired by all the top questions on this site!

  1. Email message from benefactor (1, 7, 3)
  2. Order logic puzzle(s) to die for (3, 2)
  3. A married, genuine circle (6, 7, 2)
  4. No, it’s not a secret game (3, 4, 7)
  5. Polish fast food (1, 5)
  6. Longest possible list beginning with single (7, 1)

The solution is one word indicating another aspect of PSE I like.

    $\begingroup$ Sidenote: The mechanism for this puzzle was originally intended to be a part of a huge (by my standards) meta-puzzle I had started creating back in May this year, but I ran out of ideas really quickly, and then summer started and I kinda quit the site for no reason. So I guess this is my four-month-old revival puzzle. Hope it was worth it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ $\endgroup$ – PiIsNot3 Sep 11 at 6:23

The clues...

are, like OP indicated, related to questions from Puzzling SE. Each clue contains words that are part of question titles with a word in common. The numbers indicate the letters from that word that we must pick.

Here is a link to a Pastebin with the links so they don't show up on the Linked tab and spoil the puzzle.

    1. Email message from benefactor (1, 7, 3)

The word is MYSTERIOUS.

Letters: MIS

    1. Order logic puzzle(s) to die for (3, 2)

The word is VISUAL.

Letters: SI

    1. A married, genuine circle (6, 7, 2)

The word is LOOKING.

Letters: NGO

    1. No, it’s not a secret game (3, 4, 7)

The word is POLYNOMIAL.

Letters: LYM

    1. Polish fast food (1, 5)

The word is PREFIX.

Letters: PI

    1. Longest possible list beginning with single (7, 1)

The word is SENTENCE.

Letters: CS

So:

The hidden phrase is MISSING OLYMPICS. So I guess what you like about Puzzling SE is its LOGO.
