This site has many items for both parties andÂ it is absolutely fine.Â Arguing on this site is pointless and certainly not the purpose of thingiverse. If you like it, like it. If you dont like, it, keep your mouth shut and move on. Better yet, create your own counter design.
Let's keep it reputable here, and save politics for some other useless forum.
Michael I think you are right on the dot. If this Thing were just some lame political slogan extrusion that would be one thing, but it isn't. The issue, as you said in so many words, is that XSF1 isÂ deliberatelyÂ trying to start a politically-charged spam campaign on Thingiverse with this design. IMO that sort of behavior deserves harsh criticism.Â
XSF1 used the "Description" section not to describe his thing, but instead as a dare to other Republicans to prove theirÂ allegiance by posting their own print of this thing.Â If he had succeeded with his intent and people started posting their prints right and left, it would have effectively spammed his political message across the "Who's Making What" section of the front page and beyond.Â
Luckily this community (Republicans, Democrats, Aussies, purple people and even that dude Frank) is awesome and it didn't catch on. I think if there was any over-reaction by you or myself (and there very well may have been, I'm sorry if so) then our fault was in underestimating the ability of theÂ Thingiverse communityÂ to ignore such nonsense.
