I have tried several times to post reasonable questions concerning politics, and always gotten a bad response...i.e. off-topic, POB, etc
For a site in beta, one would think there could be more latitude; however, here user-moderation seems to be limiting without actually defining the scope of the site.
In lieu of that, we have a lot opinionated comments from users which are not supported by their past answers or comments. Instead..this looks like an old-boy's club, a mob fighting for the right to claim the diamond next to their name.
I resigned from Literature.SE for a similar reason.
I am not new to SE; point in fact I probably have more flair than a lot of people posting here.
