Is there a typeface you think is good (or at least, not bad), but that you would not use because of some association with something that has nothing to do with it's graphic qualities? And I don't meant simply because you think it is over used or dated... Maybe it was designed by your X's mother in law, or a wing-nut in an aluminum foil hat and you don't condone that sort of thing... What ever. It has nothing to do with the typeface itself.
I've found the recent spate of threads about bashing typefaces a little puzzling and difficult to take seriously. If you don't like a typeface don't use it. It's just a typeface. (And it was probably designed by a regular here... )
David's comments about Futura interesting, and I agree, but I would have described it differently.
