There is great number of legitimate, but closed questions on programmers.se, mainly because they are open-ended or off-topic (although this latter label is used too liberally in my opinon). There is clearly a demand for such discussions, and chats don't seem to be good enough for them.
Would it be possible to have another SE site for such content? Maybe without accepted answers. The intention of "what is the best..." questions is not to determine the "best" but to ask the community and see what ranks the highest.
Similarly, fun questions are often closed on programmers and SO which perfectly fine, but there is clearly an audience for them since those questions often receive an extremely high number of votes and views.
Edit: It's fine if you disagree with me, but you should not downvote this question unless you think it's poorly worded or off-topic. And even then I would be glad to get constructive criticism because simply bashing the down arrow doesn't help much.
