Better stop using that incoorect terminology, it will get you to understand the game and its interactions way better by using the correct terms. The Stack cannot resolve. It is a game zone like the hand or the battlefield, where objects can reside, in this specific case spells, activated abilities, and triggered abilities. Those are the only things that can resolve. And they do so one at a time, with all players getting the opportunity to respond before the next thing resolves. Those responses, if they also happen to use the stack, will be added on top and get to resolve before the thing they were responding to.
As the objects on the stack resolve, I think it's fair to say that the stack resolves as well, maybe not in game terms, but linguistically I think it's a fair description. That being said, I should use the "proper" game/rule terminology, you're right of course, in game terms it's the items/objects on the stack that resolve and not the stack itself.
