This question already has an answer here:
Is rude or unfriendly language prohibited on all SE sites? Or are some "dirtier" fields like politics and law exempt from the rules?
I have had unfriendly comments posted on my questions about police accountability and the moderators from the law site don't seem to have the time or willingness to tackle the problem.
So, as a general rule, do we need to be civilized across all SE sites? or only some?
One time I complained here about a flag not being taken care of on "politics" site and the answer that got most upvotes included this statement "..communities have a bit of freedom how they interpret the global Stack Exchange rules."
I am skeptical about asking for help here while/if above "statement" is correct
