When someone has a need, who gives a care if the responses are opinion when they provide the help that is needed? The question that prompts me to ask this question, "Fingers get cold when I type" has a response of glove liners that cyclists wear. This is not opinion, it is factual and the closing of the topic does a disservice to the person asking the question. Hypocrite! Don't create a site that claims to offer support but declines to offer that support if you don't package your need to fit into a predetermined mold. This topic, of course, will be closed for the same reason. That, if it even gets posted in the first place.
The question that prompts me to ask this question,
"Fingers get cold when I type" has a response of glove liners that cyclists wear.

No it isn't factual. It is your opinion. If you could back up that opinion with authoritative references that would be something else entirely.
Why are opinion based topics rejected?
If you read the close reason it states:
"Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise."
The SE network has this close reason on every site. That is because we don't like opinion based answers because we prefer answers to be supported "facts, references, or specific expertise", usually in the form of reference links.
You should spend some time reading:
Note that the last link explicitly states:
Not all questions can or should be answered here. Save yourself some frustration and avoid trying to answer questions which...
...are unclear or lacking specific details that can uniquely identify the problem. ...**solicit opinions rather than facts**.
Note also "Fingers get cold when I type" may actually be a medical condition caused by circulation problems. That would be off topic on Super User.
The community has already established that opinion-based questions don't fit here. Every answer could be right or wrong and, most important, those solutions would be based on the person's opinion rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.
