Because there's no particular reason for it to be in a Python-specific
forum. The value of a Python-specific forum is directly reduced by the
amount of off-topic noise that occurs in it.

The hostility is because we need to kick the camel's nose of “just
one clearly off-topic discussion” out of the tent to avoid the whole
camel coming in.
