This answer here on meta points out a number of questions asking for a list of apps or "your favorite X app" which should probably be closed due to their subjective/unanswerable nature.

When I vote to close a question like these, which reason is the right one to use: "Not a question", "Subjective", or "Off-topic"?


Wow, my first tumbleweed badge. Wohoo!

I guess I'm going with "Not a question"

The choices have changed. I suggest that the correct reason is now "Not Constructive".
