Compare the new Opinion Based close reason with the old one:
This question is likely to be answered with opinions rather than facts and citations. It should be updated so it will lead to fact-based answers.
Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.
The new version makes it sound like any question that has a distinct possibility of being answered with an opinion should be closed, even if the question does not actually ask for opinions. In contrast, the old version made it sound like only questions that pretty much cannot be answered without recourse to opinions should be closed.
Indeed, when closing a question, I don't think we should take into account what someone might post as an answer. If someone posts an opinion as an answer that is a problem with the answer and it should be dealt with accordingly. That doesn't mean that there is a problem with the question.
I think this is especially problematic on the non-technical sites, where certain questions can be easily answered with an opinion, even though they are not seeking opinions.
For example, on a religion site, a question such as "Why does God allow evil in the world?" might very easily lead to anyone with strong feelings on the matter posting whatever opinion they have. But the question is not asking for an opinion. Within the context of the religion there is a non-opinion answer (even if that answer may be a listing of various opinions within the religion).
Or on a media site, a question such as "Why did this character do this?" might result in people posting their favorite opinions, but that doesn't change the fact that within the story under discussion there is a non-opinion reason why the character did what it did.
Is there a reason why this close reason text was changed in this way? Can it be changed back, or at least be further revised?
