The Boy Scouts of America did face backlash due to their quickness of delivering posters week after week. At one point store owners were not putting up posters because they had way to many and did not have enough space on their retailers ' windows because they needed space for their adds, others were too big and did not fit on their windows. But that was the least of their problems. Another case was the fact that they were to young to distribute to places where they sold liquor, but they quickly resolved that issue.
