Because climbers are people too with opinions and points of view that can be interjected and thus contribute to interesting (if only mildly) conversation.

Personally I think the soapbox is a good idea as the topics are set apart so that only those who desire a potentially offensive discussion need view.

I'm guessing you weren't familiar with the old Community forum on this site before the whole change. It was pretty much the Campground and Soap Box forums combined. It was here way before you, or I were here.

Maybe because you're the first person to be ironic on this site, ever.

1. Because I'm too lazy to go to a real political site.
2. Because I'm too uninformed to hold my own at a real political site.
