I tried to post a question on the main site with the title "How to compare recommendation letters" or "How to grade recommendation letters" and some similar titles from the view points of a selecting or hiring committee. But each time a blue box appears telling that

The question you are asking appears subjective and it is likely to be closed

For this reason I didn't post my question, as I felt that the question is not appropriate for this site. My question is that is there a website on stackexchange or elsewhere, where I can ask this presumably subjective question?

Usually, SE sites can allow constructive subjective questions:

  • inspire answers that explain “why” and “how”
  • tend to have long, not short, answers
  • have a constructive, fair, and impartial tone
  • invite sharing experiences over opinions
  • insist that opinion be backed up with facts and references
  • are more than just mindless social fun

If your questions falls under this category, and is relevant to Academia, you are welcome to post it on the main site.
