> Off-Topic: Most stories about politics, or crime, or sports, unless they're evidence of some interesting new phenomenon. Videos of pratfalls or disasters, or cute animal pictures. If they'd cover it on TV news, it's probably off-topic.


We're gonna start to see these kinds of posts a lot more. HN is a trusted site and nothing is more coveted by political campaigns than publicly trusted websites to exploit. It wouldn't hurt to simply allow political posts and maybe highlight them bright red to allow the rest of us to comfortably ignore them instead of letting them fall through the cracks like this one.
