In my experience, most testing forums have a few contentious topics that attract much heat, and very little light. The "certification" fracas is one example - I'm sure people can come up with others.

Given that this is a Q&A site, rather than a debating platform - are there topics that we would want to close on sight? Or should these always be dealt with on a case by case basis?


Generally such things get closed as "closed as subjective and argumentative". Example. In the beginning, we'll probably close too many too fast, such as the books one - I think that should be a community wiki question as it is on many other sites.

  • the "is OK but community wiki" vs "should be closed" has always been hard to judge IMHO May 4 '11 at 13:33
