There are times things are considered political when they weren't meant that way. One day I may a comment about how absurd some comments were on a particular news site. My comment was a blanket generalization on the kind of people that make comments, and how stupid their comments sound. Even though I meant it in general terms, the fact that I mentioned a particular site meant I was being political. I wasn't but nothing I said mattered. I was basically told I was full of crap.
Guess what, it wasn't meant to lean one way or the other. My only mistake was using the site name. It could have been any news site that allows comments.
