I have noticed a lot of discussion type 'questions' that are asked on SO that get closed have some really interesting replies. I understand why these types of questions get closed and completely agree with the reasoning behind doing so. Being someone that is interested by the discussion that is generated by these closed questions, where could I find websites that are targeted towards this?
I imagine that the best sites will be forums with an active and positive community but I find it hard to gauge how interesting a forum is without actively participating in it for some time and with the sheer volume of programming related forums out there, it could be a while before I come across one that is worthwhile.
Do any of you know of any such sites/forums that may interest me and/or other members of SO who enjoy this type of discussion?
I will update this question with a list of any good sites that are recommended to me or that I discover.
