Most of people are saying that asking for the best software is subjective.
I see two issues in this reasoning:
- best doesn't mean singular. You can ask for the best 100 XXX of
- it's not the word best to add subjectivity but the criteria of choosing.
Let me explain my thought with an example.
If I ask: Which is the most effective drug with a termogenic effect?
The answer is not subjective, but the cost of obtaining really non opinion based answer is very intensive:
Not subjective = double blind placebo controlled study
And the question miss of specifying if they want to take into account how harmful are this drugs. But it's not the word "most effective" the problem. Is the lack of specification the problem.
Instead if I ask one of the following questions:
Which are the best termogenic drugs
Which are some good termogenic drugs
Which are some termogenic drugs
The answer will not change in any way. It's just window dressing.
