Recently one of my questions was "closed as subjective and argumentative".
I wonder, where would you recommend to ask such questions?

Well it depends on how subjective or argumentative your question is.
If you want to start a so-called flame war, anywhere but here. I don't care whether you prefer vi or emacs or eclipse. Or Linux/Windows or whatever. I have never had time for "what's the best programming language" debates. Such arguments are best left to people who don't have code to write for deadlines.
However, your question was actually on the semantics of a programming language itself and which works best. As such, it is about programming, i.e. programming language design and that in itself is valid. It currently has 3 votes to re-open, one from me. I've no idea why it was closed in the first place.
(I'll skip the sphiel on why you should never leave stackoverflow :)
I've cruised a lot of other sites before coming to stackoverflow. They're forums, so subjective and argumentative stuff is par for the course. here's the top 3:
daniweb.com: , broad topics, not just programming and web dev, but many other computer issues. Worth checking out. Daniweb and dev shed are both very broad computer sites, taking questions on software design, hardware, web development, etc.
dreamincode.net: programming and web dev help, large site.
devshed.com little smaller than the others, been around for awhile.
