Topic #196: What's with the political message on this puzzle?

Check out puzzle 7173. I think it's obnoxious to be pushing political causes on this website and I think this puzzle should be removed.

I think you're probably out of luck getting it removed. There are far more offensive puzzles that have been left. Best thing you can hope for is that it will be marked as political in nature...

The puzzle is fairly decent. Yes, it's a text puzzle, but interesting and attractive as text puzzles go.

I googled the 9-12 project which this puzzle endorses. It's stated principles are fairly vague, pretty much generic right/libertarian with a Christian bent. Claims not to endorse an political party or candidate. Slightly apolitical sounding for a political group, though they may have other unstated principles I don't know about. Doesn't look like a group I'd particularly fit in with, but seem to be decent folks. I see little need to add anything to the title to warn people of the content. It's title is "Patriot" and its all red, white and blue. Can't say I expect anyone to be shocked that the result is a right of center bumper sticker.

If it were endorsing Satanists or Nazis, then probably I'd want a warning in the title, but this is so mild that I'm happy to leave it to the author's discretion.
