Dear @CafePress: Submitting More Violations for You From Your “F*CK ILLEGALS” Section

UPDATE: Around 7pm EST, the "F*ck Illegals" section has been taken down.

Looks like CafePress needs more employees or better servers, because they truly have some very suspect filtering systems. Our staff spent a little more time on the site today to see what other products they are selling, and after a reader suggested we enter the search term "F*ck Illegals," we came across these lovely gift ideas:

 

 

We think these are all policy violations from your site. Maybe it's time to rethink it all? Get better systems? Or hire more people to mine your images? Here's a thought: maybe eliminiate the word "f*ck" from your searches?

 

In the meantime, CafePress' PR Agency has revised its original statement statement to us. This is what we got at 5:20 EST today:

CafePress is in the process of reviewing user-designed images as brought to our attention recently. We are making decisions as to what user images are, and are not acceptable based on our policy.

We review over 120,000 user-uploaded images each week, and encourage our customers to notify us at [email protected] if they see user content on CafePress that they feel violate our policies. 

UPDATE: The Anti=Mexico section has been taken down.
