"The company's data was initially offered for sale on the same forum and via private Telegram channels in December 2020, before being leaked for free last week by ShinyHunters in a common practice where data brokers sabotage each others' sales."

So much for honor among thieves.

...Hmmmm.   Back in early summer, I ordered an A-10 themed mask from them, and of course the emails after that came in on a regular basis, several times a week.

About a week ago, the emails stopped, and haven't seen one since.

Wait... "The data, apparently came from a June Teespring hack, includes email addresses," So... I might not get spammed to death.

It seems like they are not actually thieves themselves.  They are running interference against thieves so they won't profit over their actions.

i think i got some masks and a shirt from them last year as well.

So, apparently not one human saw, or was offended by the shirt design, before it went out the door. Gonna call BS on that. 

We've had customers who wanted modified products, or wanted to use them for unintended / unsafe purposes, and always tell them no. How hard is that.

I should add that they shipped me two hoodies, when I only ordered one, so my opinion of them is of an honest clusterfark.

Teespring is one of those services that will list and print anyone's shirt designs on demand, right? Anyone can sign up and there's little oversight into what gets listed?

There's a case to be made that they should do a better job moderating their listings, but I don't think it's fair to paint the entire company with such a broad brush based on a tiny minority of their user base. Unless you can show me where Teespring had been deliberately marketing to the Nazi crowd?

If your company produces anything based on automated processes, then you can expect horrible farkwits to submit awful stuff to put it on a shirt/mug/hat etc.
either just admit it and don't apologize or do something different

They donated 10k  but failed to mention how much money they actually made from the T-Shirts.   Also these shirts don't appear out of thin air, I understand maybe they can't review every single design but somebody has to actually make these things right?
