The standard rules for this forum (and I think most stack exchange forums) is that questions that call for an opinion-based answer rather than a fact based answer should be removed. I would like to challenge this and ask for - you guessed it - the opinions of others, especially the forum leaders and moderators.
I would say that certain quesstions that may provide valuable input to or about the course even though asking for opinions should be allowed to stand. Case in point, someone just asked a question about when they should start using function calls in the psets, which problem set? Truly an opinion based answer, but still valuable advice to any new programmer or student (albeit simplistic advice). I would leave this question stand because it will be useful to others.
I think that before we vote to remove opinion based questions out of hand, we should seriously consider whether they benefit our community if left in place. Does anyone agree or disagree, and/or should there be additional or different criteria to judge whether a question should stand? Cast your votes below!
