I posted a comment on a question I spotted earlier that referencing Ireland. The question was not very specific, and the answers went off in a similar tangent.
This question doesn't highlight the fact that "Ireland" is an island in the physical sense, but politically is divided. Many people are not aware of this, and jump in with poor quality answers that don't take the politics or situation into account. I feel that the quality of the answers would have improved if the original question had been updated to be more specific. This could have been done from a neutral viewpoint without taking any political side.
What do people think about this? I would imagine that this problem will crop up in other places over time.
