My take was it was too broad.

Several things got taken out for "political" that frankly shouldn't have been.

The post of YC’s Winter Reading List, as the list contained some political volumes, was the most silly to my mind. Book lists usually spin up excellent recommendations in the comments and are especially topical this time of year. Yet it got flagged off the front page and discussion died.

An international story completely unrelated to US or EU politics, Trump or Brexit etc.

Thanks, I had missed the discussion of the reading list!
