Subjective questions are prevalent across the SE network on most sites that aren't targeted at a technical profession. There is no reason we should stay away from subjectivity just because we can be a contentious lot.

However, the important thing is to stick to the criteria laid out in Good Subjective, Bad Subjective. And to keep the image Jeff always links to in mind enter image description here.

If we can keep to those two criteria in mind then I think that we can successfully accept subjective questions.
