For the general case... there are two distinct cases of posts containing politics.
Good: When the politics is related to the question, and helps us understand Chinese. In these cases, it should ideally be presented in a matter-of-fact, detached tone, and kept to the minimum necessary. We're not trying to win an argument, nor endorsing certain viewpoints; ...
