Sep 24 '10 at 14:44 comment added David Thornley The given bad question is bad because it's poorly phrased. There's a good question lurking in there (and in far fewer words). The question of why tools get popular, and some get extremely popular, is an interesting one, and not really suited for SO.
Sep 23 '10 at 22:22 comment added user149432 @TheLQ the goal of a SE site isn't to convert people to one's cause. It's to provide useful information (in the form of questions and answers) to visitors. Subjective or extended questions can be useful to people: they can find out how complex an issue is by the diverging answers. But the rant questions only serve one use to a passerby, and that's to inform them that the question asker is an a-hole.
Sep 23 '10 at 22:18 comment added TheLQ I do think some questions end up being rants, but we mostly close those as "Not a real question" anyway. And besides, it is a subjective question since people are looking for alternatives to their view. And such alternatives might change their view for the better, which is our end goal anyway.
