We try so hard to prevent our shiny new possessions from getting scratched, scuffed, or dented - our cars, iPhones, laptops, etc. Heck, my brother just returned a clothes washing machine that was delivered to his home because it had a small ding in it. So, I think it would come as a shock to most people to deliberately uglify something they just paid a few hundred dollars for.
