The site is subjective regardless of what some of the posters might think. When we start having a site that caters to programmers' interests, that becomes subjective and subject to up/down voting as expressed by whoever constitute the mass of posters with the power to vote up/down.
Some questions are valid but closed because of being too localized, but then you have these inane questions that continue to exist despite logic dictating to close the damned thing. People vote up and down on a whim as if they were in Myspace (with many of the posters being just out of HS and still pretending to be the second reincarnation of Dijkstra.)
So what you have is a combination of the worst posting elements of Yahoo!Answers, MySpace and slashdot, all mixed in a cabalistic abomination, semi-moderated by whim rather than procedure.
You cannot help yourself from being annoyed, but don't let it get under your skin either. For every gold nugget of info you get here, you'll get a bucket of crap with crawling roaches on it. You have to determine if the signal-to-noise ratio makes it worthwhile the reading.
