Once I opened a question on meta citing this article blog: Good Subjective, Bad Subjective and someone replied me: it's an old article now SE has got better, stricter and so on :-)
It's a very good article instead. Who answered me maybe was simply wrong or choose a stupid answer, but actually is very funny how many mirrors we can climb to avoid thinking again if we are right or not.
I think I understand very well the reason which pushed that guy (he was trying to help this community), but for me was also a bit sad to see a member of this community refuse the columns on which this community has been built.
I wanted to ask on another point, but maybe my question has got too long.
My question was:
When I am coding and I have to choose the name of variable there are some complex cases in which I can use a name which explains what the variable is storing or what for I will use that variable.
For example, in my case I have a string which contains an url which specifies only the language to be used in the website. And I will use it to make a redirection. The actual name is something like "redirectUrl" but it's not clear what I'm redirecting to.
Which solutions are advised by Software Engineering in this cases?
The question is subjective, but we are not speaking of something like Yahoo Answers (and who state this should be burned out :-p). But is this kind of question a good subjective question?
I would like an answer which keeps into account what is written in the article I cited.
