Where can I find interesting programming discussions?

It seems Stack Overflow is quite strict, for example, questions can't be discussions. I assume the chat rooms are equally strict.

So where do people in Stack Overflow congregate? I refuse to believe there's no provision for random discussions!

    @Grace: It was a toss up, but I do think it makes a little bit more sense this way. :) May 23 '11 at 17:22

The chat rooms are exactly the place to go for discussions. We are still pretty strict about profanity and abusive language in the chat rooms, but that's about it. Subjective discussions are quite welcome.

    Chat on SF actively discourages on topic discussion, boobs on the otherhand ...

    @Iain, I don't know that your statement is entirely true. We have had many good on-topic subjective discussions. What we really don't like is the hold-your-hand, walk me through a two-hour long setup type 'questions'.

    Yeah the SF chat 'vibe' is that its a place to relax and talk about work / the questions rather than a place to do work / the questions.
