Occasionally a question gets asked that is approximately of the form:
I have this problem, what should I do?
I have this problem, should I do X?
These are then closed as opinion based, reworded into something like
What are the advantages/disadvantages of doing X?
before being reopened. Which seems to me like a lot of effort (a full round of closure votes, an edit, and reopen votes) to get a question that is effectively asking the same way, using more words and less clear language. Seemingly just to get rid of the word "should", like it is a red flag for opinion based answers. This praxis has been met with some grumbling from members of chat, and I think it is time we take this discussion properly.
The only historic example I have been able to retrieve is this (unanswered) meta question. (I'm sure others with better memory/search mojo than me can find others.) I was now prompted by this more recent question, but I know this has happened to more questions.
So, does using the word "should" in a question make it inherently opinion based and so is effectively taboo to use in a question? Or can we take "should" to mean "what are the advantages/disadvantages of" and so answer questions without going through the close cycle to homogenise it with other questions?
