Am I being over overzealous for trying to close this question as subjective?

I'm wondering since it got a lot of answers, even from persons with higher rank.

I wouldn't call it subjective, but it doesn't have a definite answer. Too localized comes to mind. –  Time Traveling Bobby May 12 '11 at 8:45
    
Then how is a correct answer chosen for that question? –  jgauffin May 12 '11 at 8:50
    
does it really have to be a correct answer? isn't an accepted answer enough? –  Jonas May 12 '11 at 8:56
    
@Jonas: Last time I checked, no, it's not enough. Just because something has an accepted answer doesn't turn it into a good or on-topic question. The question is close to hitting the second point in the FAQ. –  Time Traveling Bobby May 12 '11 at 9:06
    
@Bobby: in some cases it is. See the link about "six guidelines for great subjective questions" in the FAQ. –  Jonas May 12 '11 at 9:13

I wouldn't call it subjective, since the "asker" does not ask "What is the best ORM"etc. He just asks for recommendations on where to look, and the answerers are giving him some insight. I wouldn't call it subjective probably.

It's still subjective. But some subjective questions are allowed. –  Jonas May 12 '11 at 9:44
    
Yeah, I suppose so, it's probably subjective to the point that no answer could be considered as "the correct one". –  Nikos Steiakakis May 12 '11 at 10:14
    
The closing reason includes also "argumentative." If that question is not subjective, then it is at least argumentative. –  kiamlaluno May 12 '11 at 15:33
