I would like to ask a question about Java that doesn't have a specific answer. It's a question to see what people think and to share their opinion.

Will Stack Overflow tolerate this, or is there another Stack Exchange resource where I may ask a question like this?


More than likely that question will not be on-topic for Stack Overflow. Questions are meant to be objective and definitively answerable. Quoting stackoverflow.com/help/dont-ask:

You should only ask practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face. Chatty, open-ended questions diminish the usefulness of our site and push other questions off the front page.

It might behoove you to read the rest of the content on that link.

    hm "behoof; Benefit or advantage", you learn something new every day – Richard Tingle Sep 5 '13 at 19:18

The only appropriate place for such a question would be chat. Other than that, you'll need to go to some other site outside of the SE network.

The appropriate place for discussions is Quora. They are more about feelings and soft topics anyway.

Barring that, I bet experts-exchange.com would take the question. :)

  • Pretty much any non-SE site out there isn't going to toss out these types of questions. At least, I've never found any that have such a restriction. – Servy Sep 5 '13 at 20:02
