This question already has an answer here:
I am a little confused as to what constitutes a fair question on SO. I posted a question, that some thought to be subjective and was downvoted, followed by 3 votes to close.
I responded with a comment asking people to flag a question as off topic and move it to Programmers SE if they thought it was too subjective. Instead, the post was closed as "subjective and argumentative."
Honestly, I participate pretty heavily in Programmers SE and I do not feel this question would have been closed as a bad-subjective. That's why I made the recommendation in the first place.
But, since they went ahead and closed my question anyways, I asked for the question to be deleted. They refused deleting the question because it had been upvoted.
I had actually asked to delete the question because I felt my question was answered. I also did not want others downvoting my question, especially seeing the question was closed.
This whole ordeal makes me feel as if moderation is still too literal on SO. Too many users do not understand what Programmers is for or the definition of good-subjective questions (as can be seen in the comments).
I feel that more people with the ability to close questions, and just in general need to be more aware of the SE faq's.
Second, moderators should also be aware of not just what the FAQ states, but also how they are interpreted and "play out" for real on Programmers. This will prevent a lot of unecessary downvoting and closing of real questions.
Now people are downvoting my post on SO. Thanks.
