I have updated the guidelines above. In particular,

This is not intended to exclude legitimate political debate where appropriate. 270soft reserves the right to define what 'legitimate' political debate means in this context.
If someone is articulating a sincere political view, making rational arguments for it and citing evidence, and not attempting to be inflammatory simply to be inflammatory (which is sometimes tough to judge), then the moderator will probably allow the comment, as long as the thread isn't getting out of hand. If so, the thread will probably be closed.
