Someone asked this question:
The question was clear. There were several answers, all of which were positive, on-topic, and full of good information (although mine was a bit long-winded).
The question was closed as being subjective.
I do not see any benefit to StackOverflow or its users whatsoever in closing this question - this question, not subjective questions in general. Did closing this question bring any benefit?
I'm dubious that it was even subjective. I can certainly see how it is a bit subjective, but if this is subjective, then any question about what constitutes best practice is subjective. Does this question meet the criteria for subjectivity?
If the answer to these questions are 'no' and 'yes' respectively, does this mean that the rule on subjectivity is broken, and needs to be fixed?
More generally, what the hell happened? How could anyone look at that question and think it was something that needed suppressing?
