Exceptional cases for list questions
There are a lot of questions asking about some kind of subjective things, such as best-practices or best tools. Each such tool/practice has its pros and cons and, therefore, the best one, probably, cannot be chosen. Are those kind of questions legitimate? They seem to be too chatty, open-ended, not to the point. Most probably such best-practices collections can be found on any other programming-related web-site. But for some reason they are on SO too.
Some of such SO questions are closed (which is probably, right). But some of them still opened. Is there any particular reason why they are still not closed?
- What is your most productive shortcut with Vim?
- What is your favorite textmate plugin or bundle?
- Favorite (G)Vim plugins/scripts?
PS. Probably, there is duplicate for this question, but I could not find it. Would be glad if you'll find a relevant duplicate.
