The answers to this question seem to point to the history/politics cutoff being a discretionary thing, based on context. Some seem to believe that the discretion should be based on date. But it seems like more and more frequently, using the word 'history' in a politics post gets it moved to History.
I understand the need to have flexibility in judgment, but it seems like having some general rules/guidelines/best practices for moderators to consider would provide more consistent results. Is this worth pursuing?
