I’m also on the EEVBlog forum as MrAureliusR. Just discovered SparkFun – what a handy website! The breakout boards in particular are extremely handy. Will be ordering many things soon!

  • Hey presnell, go stick it up your arse. They are being transparent, and explaining how this may impact their business. What the fuck is “virtue-signalling” anyway? That seems to be a made-up nonsense term. How is this at ALL political? They are talking about the impact of recent tariffs on their bottom line. Whether or not they agreed with the tariffs is irrelevant – it WILL have an impact. Period. People are interested to know what that impact is. I can’t believe how stupid some people are.

  • Oh, so you’re going to return to your country of origin, then, 436136? Your family were immigrants too. Easy to forget that, isn’t it? You seem to think it’s “your” country, but it’s not.

  • Good riddance, IMO.

  • Wow. So you’re willing to eschew fact just because the POTUS said something different? I smell giant hypocrisy here…

  • Thank you, Nathan. You guys are amazing. Beliefs trump profits, every time. Pardon the pun. I’m glad you won’t censor your speech because a bunch of bullies in the comments ask you to.

  • Wrong, wrong, wrong. Sadly misinformed. Not ONE of the countries on the list has had a citizen commit terror attacks on American soil. The big ones (Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Pakistan, even Kyrgyzstan, were NOT on the list. So that’s 9/11, Bostom Bombings, San Bernadino shootings… not on the list.) So this is clearly not about terrorism, but about political optics, which is disgusting. YOU are an immigrant to America. This land was originally Native land. America has been extremely lucky to have so many incredible people immigrate from all over the world to help build your country, and now your spitting in their faces. Well, if that isn’t divisive, I don’t know what is.

  • Except America is NOT a right-wing country. Never has been, never will be. It is a balacing act between both wings. Saying that not being leftist keeps “America America” is disgusting and disrespectful.

  • Wow. Except one little fact you missed – the countries on the list have never had citizens commit terror attacks on American soil. All the big ones were left off the list. Now what do you have to say?

  • My apologies. This stuff really gets under my skin. And I don’t even live in the US!

  • Do you really think they give a toss if they lose a few customers who are opposed to human rights? Good riddance to bad trash! They’re not being self-righteous. Read their post again. They are simply stating that they have always supported immigration and refugees. The executive order CLEARLY DOES THE OPPOSITE. They are stating that they are opposed to this. If you agree with Drumpf, then you can retort. But they shouldn’t, and clearly don’t, care that they’ll lose maybe 0.1% of their customers over this. Believe it or not, standing for what you believe in is worth more than profits, something many Americans can never seem to wrap their heads around.
