I recently posted an answer to a political question that was, let's be honest, a politically challenging, but not abusive, answer. Checking the Be Nice policy, I don't feel that I've done anything wrong but my question gets flagged as rude/abusive anyway.
I am aware of What if six users conspire to nuke posts with spam flags? but I'm sure that it's sufficient as I don't want to have to pester moderators with begging flags to undo damage done (or if they preemptively delete posts, in good faith, to prevent damage being done).
Politics and political issues are, unfortunately, creeping their way into our jobs and this site, and I'd like there to be an unobtrusive way to defend politically challenging, but not insulting, posts from flagging wars.
What are the possible options, for regular users and mods?
