I agree with the misuse of the term Nazi. It comes from the improper/over use of the term by many liberals. For example, George Bush is a Nazi, John Ashcroft is a Nazi, Big oil are Nazis, Fox news are Nazis etc. Is it any wonder that our kids start to use it improperly as well? or they start to associate the term for anything they think is "bad" or disagree with.

On the low score. We can agree that this is not the best posted here, but for this to have been in the 30's is simply unjustified. If you really do not believe that the majority of posters to this site tend to be liberal (sorry, progressive)then you are either new or unwilling to accept the facts. A low score without suggestions for improvement is an indicator of the reponders "knee jerk" reacting to the content or image. For example, Tim's Christian artwork or my own negative ratings for anything that is Satanic, socialist or porn related.

...the low score must be because you chose to feature North America in your image. Next time feature an Euro state or paste a hammer & sickle, satan, peace sign etc. You get the idea.

The low score is because the original submussion was uhm... Lacking. However this has changed. And I am afraid that your assumption about the neo-facist opinions of this forum is greatly exaggerated. Though I was currently rather disturbed by someone who told me there are now people who think that Stalin and Hitler were both Nazis... Some people need to get a grip of history.

And now back to your regular scheduled programme. This is still not really my kind of thing, but the execution of it is much better than what it was. Congrats :)

I like it. Don't understand why it has such a low score. It's certainly worthy of better.

Keep it up!

Not a bad concept, but maybe you should try getting a higher quality earth and I think the rays should be a little more beefy/technical looking.
