I have my "Politics" message filtering rule set up to filter out certain key words in the subject line (such as Trump, Hillary, Obama, etc.), and I just added OT as one of the filter words.
Some of the people who post political commentary here also post valid questions and responses that are directly related to alt.home.repair. So, I do not want to filter out those people by name because I would miss their posts that are completely on topic and are related to alt.home.repair and are not political commentary.
If those of you who do wish to post political commentary messages here would be so kind as to preface each one with "OT" in the subject line, that would certainly help people like me to not see those messages and more easily find the truly on-topic alt.home.repair messages.
