While I understand the need for getting a precise/objective answer to questions, I do feel that SO is becoming pedantic and totalitarian. If a question is tagged as subjective/non-programming related/community-wiki/fun/off-topic, does it really require voted to death [closed]? The OP has clearly made his intention, why not live with it. No one can game a CW post.
I remember SO being fun and witty. Almost every question spawned curiosity. What else does a programmer crave for! Paraphrasing voltaire, "One may not agree with what the other says, but one should definitely stand up for the right of others to say so". I have found some great insights in smart retorts and regret missing that. Why not have a different section for that because of the close trigger happy guys
