Writer's Block: Supersize me

Have you ever boycotted a company or product? If so, what was it, and what caused you to boycott it?

I refuse to listen to Metallica ever since they sued Napster.  (On the other hand, I went out and bought the latest Mötley Crüe album when they did an animated video in support of Napster.)  I used to use Napster to find new music, and if I like it, I'd go out and buy the CD.  Since Napster got shut down, I've bought a lot less music.

Media piracy is still very much alive.....try using Limewire, with thepiratebay.org as your torrent tracker (the cookies you download from TPB will automatically pull up the torrent on limewire once you open them) Stick with the free version of limewire, you don't need "pro" if you use TPB.

It amuses me to think back to the old "original napster" days, when I still had a 56k connection, and it ofetn took 3 or 4 hours to download one song....now I can download entire discographies in less than an hour :)
