I got an email ( spam) from my ultra right wing ex neighbor today. First he thanked me for helping make the NFL Veterans Weekend boycott so successful( it wasn't), then he implored me to boycott a certain coffee making company because they pulled their ads off a radio show where the host claimed something didn't happen, and even if it did it was consensual.
Boycotting this coffee maker for me is easy as 1) I don't drink coffee and 2) I was already boycotting it since some left wing friends accused it of raping the environment with billions of plastic discs. I wonder what they are doing today?
I'm not into the whole Bushmill/Jamison nonsense, and have no intention of either drinking nor boycotting Jim Beam.

So who is boycotting what?

I've been considering boycotting protest movements.

I've been boycotting Denny's since 1994.
I heart Crystal Math.

I don't know if this counts as boycotting, but there are a lot of companies and businesses I don't patronize because I simply don't like their products or don't like they way they do business.

I also refuse to travel to certain countries for one reason or another. I guess that could be considered a boycott.

Haha...I just read that ratings for Veteran's Day weekend were up 20% from the week before, and attendance to games was up as well.

Obviously, but we need lists.
