I tried to ask on Stack Overflow for a tool or technology choice, and my question was closed as non-constructive or not intended for Stack Overflow. I tried to ask the same question on Programmers, and it was closed with the same reasoning.
I see that those types of questions usually have a lot of up-votes, but they are typically closed quickly. So, there exists a need for a forum where people can discuss which technology/API/tool to use, but I haven't found something like that yet.
Is there a place like that within the Stack Exchange Network?
