In regards to the boycott  
Well, it's over. The dust has settled, people are back, discussing how much good they've done, patting each other on the back for striking a blow for cheap as free Intarwubs journalling. In the process, they're probably making twice as many posts and comments as they would have otherwise done.

Friendships have broken over "scabbing," crossing the invisible, silent picket line... cloud... field. Well, anyway, friends lists have been pruned. In all of this, with all the insults that have been passed...

No one insulted me. Not directly.

Not one person all butthurt over the whole non-issue had the build-up of bile to spit at my feet.

Crimeny, I'm slipping.

Um, okay... hang on... lessee here...

*clears throat, reads from a B. Franklin autobiography*

"Dear sir, you are, without any doubt, a rogue, a rascal, a villain, a thief, a scoundrel and a mean, dirty, stinking, sniveling, sneaking, pimping, pocket-picking, thrice double-damned no-good son-of-a-bitch."

(Popular lore says that Franklin, possibly in collusion with Stephen Hopkins of Rhode Island, had a bunch of these cards printed up with a space to sign your own name at the bottom, and you would then just pass them out at the Constitutional Convention. The theory was that it would save everyone a lot of time and bother.)

Oh, from Mr. Franklin, no doubt. Very cool, thank you.
