IMO, all the question with subjective tone should be flagged as subjective.

It would make easier to filter questions when one want to answer subjective or non-subjective questions.

A [subjective] tag would be a meta tag, and these are explicitly discouraged.

In addition, please keep in mind that subjective questions themselves are iffy. I highly recommend reading the following blog posts:

    Subjective questions are tough, but if they meet the guidelines for a good subjective question, they can have quite a powerful impact. I enjoy the great subjective questions. They make me think and have helped me find ways to improve my skills, both here and in Programmers SE. – jmort253 Feb 19 '11 at 17:55
  • @jmort253, sure, they're iffy, but there are some pearls. However, a meta tag won't help. – Rebecca Chernoff Feb 19 '11 at 17:59

    Agreed. No point in a meta tag. I was just saying that subjective questions can add a lot of value as long as the OP carefully words the question and follows the guidelines in the FAQ. +1 for discouraging meta tag. – jmort253 Feb 19 '11 at 21:17

Do we need subjective questions at all? What is the purpose of them? Stackexchange is not a blog, not a forum, and not an online book. It's a Q&A site, where I ask a question and get an answer. My purpose is not "to talk" here, but to get or give information.
