Recently there have been many close requests with the "opinion based" reason and I am wondering if having this close option is useful. In a way most questions on this site are opinion based, and what exactly is opinion based and what isn't is ironically very much based on opinion.
In the majority of cases where questions are requested to be closed for being opinion based, I actually agree that they should be closed, but there are usually better reasons available. Usually such questions also have no clear goal or are lacking detail or focus.
In the case where non of the other close reasons apply I usually think that the question are worth answering. One recent example, and three other re-open voters seem to agree with me, would be the question about how much backend TL should know about frontend: As a Tech Lead, to what degree should I learn about frontend technologies?
In general I feel that questions on how to navigate the workplace cannot be answered with scientific rigor and exactness and any answer will always have a good portion of subjectivity to it, with that in mind nearly every question could be considered "opinion-based" and what would be considered "objective answers" are only considered to be objective, because there is a very wide consensus about its truthfulness. I understand that SE is not the right place to have a debate, but I think there is no harm in having a specific, focused and on-topic question with clear goals with a variety of different answers, based on different experiences.
PS: As a Meta Meta comment; while writing this, SE shows me that there has been this motion 7 years ago. Can we eliminate the close reason "Primarily Opinion Based"? Since the user base is different now, I think there is no harm in bringing this up again, and I hope the rules of meta allow duplicates.
