I'm a fairly active user over on StackOverflow for my job/hobby and while I was at work this question popped up on my feed. It is something that I feel I have some expertise around. However, when showing this post to my co-workers, we both provided facts, life experiences, wisdom, etc. that were completely opposite of each other. One was pro debt, the other was opposed.
I checked the
faq and the
answers tag, but couldn't find anything on seemingly opinionated answers. On StackOverflow, code either runs (or is correct) or doesn't run (or is incorrect). I feel it's a more black and white area than Personal Finance. I am aware that Primarily-Opinion Based questions are off topic for this site. But
Primarily is the word that is tripping me up. Personal finance can sometimes be, well, personal.
Before I start answering questions - Am I allowed to give answers, that may seem opinion based to others, as long as I explain my reasoning, provide facts/data, etc.? or are the questions that would lead to such an answer be deemed "off topic" and therefore inappropriate to leave an answer
