Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I've experienced that, as a newbie programmer, I need answers to many 'newbish' things. In many events I need help with stuff like "is it bad practise to use this function (example)", and it'll quickly get closed as subjective and argumentative.

Does anyone else realize that this is a problem?

An argumentative question is mostly about how you ask. Can you give an example? – Greg Hewgill Dec 28 '10 at 21:05
Here's all your closed questions on Stack Overflow. Which question are you referring to? The only "subjective and argumentative one" is What is the best online, free JavaScript tutorial? – Greg Hewgill Dec 28 '10 at 21:08
@Greg: There are the PHP vs C#/.NET ones too. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Dec 28 '10 at 21:11
Good point. I may have ahem an ignored tag in there. :) – Greg Hewgill Dec 28 '10 at 21:17

Sorry but all your closed questions look like they were closed for good reason to me. It seems you need to read the faq about what types of questions to ask and try using the search feature before posting. Reposting your own question multiple times is also frowned on.

StackOverflow has enough traffic that if you're asking noob questions, it's almost certainly been covered before. If after looking at the close reason given on the question and reading the faq you're still not sure why it was closed, let us know which question it is that you're wondering about.
