It TOTALLY matters because time and again I see my SP friends post political threads venting about the opposite side and then get mad when their posts are reported and then deleted. I am providing links to SP teams that specifically for right or left politics so that they may have a place to post their political concerns.
If you meant what does it really matter in terms of why even post a political thread to begin with then, yeah, you may just have a point there.
LOL! I have already learned my lesson here at SP a few years ago about politically natured threads so if you've noticed, I don't post them anymore. However, many folks seem to want to jab at something political and/or try to convert us heathens via religious posts so I thought I'd do us all a favor and post political SP teams. You should join one!

Proboards has several. There is a group there from the old MSN message boards (MSN closed their boards several years ago).

Well, I am very political, a bit strident and I love to argue...but it just doesn't occur to me to want to post about these topics in the context of Sparkpeople, since we are here to talk about health, weight loss, fitness, diet, wellness, etc.
KJ, maybe you need to find a more general board for expression on political topics. Have you tried sites like Reddit? I wonder if other Sparklers might have suggestions about good general message boards for political and other debate?
