I understand you want questions that can be answered definitively, that's the point of a stack. But given how many sappy personal advice questions you're getting, maybe it's time to create a support group to redirect them to, or maybe find an existing one, because just putting these questions on hold is a dick move.
Mathoverflow is more lenient, they even have big-list and soft-question tags for such questions, might be a good idea to have these as well, especially considering that it's a soft-ish stack already.
Edit: there can be no confuson here, and it is imperative that this issue is resolved. Make no mistake: human questions are the most important ones, not questions about finding printed C++ standard. There must be a high quality community where they can be answered, because turning away people who seek advice from seasoned programmers on a site called "Programmers" is downright criminal. I don't believe that a community where such questions are welcome can be divorced from a community with more hard questions, or its reputation system would go haywire. So it's either SO or this one.
