I'm just going to throw this out there but I don't really think there's much we should do to enforce such a rule. I think judging the quality of someones reasoning becomes too opinion based of a ...

It depends. If the questions are polar opposites, or if they could stand on their own without being supplemented with explanations from the other they should be closed as too broad. For example How ...

There's a lot of discussion going on in the comments but I'm going to go out on a limb here and write an answer. I think, for the most part, that most opinion-based answers should just get upvoted/...
