The politics rule is getting out of hand
There's also this one
The latter is the one I'm really struggling with. If that's politics and can't be talked about, then any mention of any town, city, province, etc. is also politics and should be banned. Of course I don't want that to happen, I'm saying it to prove my point. That is no more politics than a thread about Toronto getting a new restaurant.
I don't mean to call you out Mr Perfect, you're just applying the rules as they're written and you just happen to be the guy who locked those threads, but I think this is getting out of hand. It's clear that political and religious discussions are banned and no matter what I say they're going to stay banned. That's fine, but lets not lock every single thread that is very loosely based on some form of politics. Lets use a little common sense and a little discretion to determine what is political in nature, rather than just loosely based on politics.
Political talk is banned, but why ban subjects based on politics? That may seem like the same thing, but it's not if you think about it. Any mention of a city, town, province, etc. is loosely based on politics but isn't necessarily political in nature. Any mention of any crown corporation, public service workers, taxes, etc. is based on politics, but not necessarily political.
