I agree there should be a place to say things that are not appropriate for the lounge, but I found the soapbox recently was just a place to go argue with somebody else about political views.

Anything not related to politics was quickly swept onto page 423 and never seen by most people, so kind of makes it pointless when it's like that.

The only people it was useful for is people that want to argue for the sake of arguing. If those people actually gave a crap about what they were arguing about then they would actually go do something about it, rather than just voicing their opinions on a site that is dedicated to programming.

Perhaps the soapbox could come back but with an initial rule that politics is not suitable conversation. At least until people can learn to mix up their conversational topics a bit.
