People judge. That's life. Without the capacity to judge, we wouldn't be able to dress ourselves in the morning nor know when to cross the street without getting run over. If one wants opinions on a topic, one is basically asking others to judge a situation and share their views. Judgmental language would be a part of that.

If one doesn't want to read the gamut of experiences and opinions from many different people who have divergent views and various ways of expressing themselves, then it would be better to ask for opinions from a closed, select group of people instead of strangers on an international public forum on the internet.
