Boycott Update: Disney, & Amy's Kitchen
I am now also boycotting Amy's Kitchen, for mistreating me on facebook.

I have emailed Best Buy about my boycott on Disney, and some of the reasons why I'm doing it, proposing they boycott it, too.
I do not expect them to do it, and admitted so in the email, as well as stated I won't hold it against them if they don't, because of the profit they will lose if they do it.
But, I figured it was worth bringing it up to a major store from which people buy movies, and TV shows on DVD/blu-ray.
Because consumers/shoppers, and stores selling a business's goods have the greatest power over whether or not a business can get away with something, and whether or not they can be successful.
These monopolies think they own us (both buyers, and buy+sellers). They think that they can do as they please with little effort to seem good. They need to think again. We have working brains. We pick what we do, and do not buy; and/or, do, and do not sell; and, why.

EDIT IN: I have also contacted CBS pointing out it makes their characters less believable, or relatable compared to RL geeks that they never talk about these geekdom things (Star Wars Galaxies, or Star Wars being bought by Disney), and only touch things like RL MMORPGs to feature, or discuss if they get paid to do an episode on it as advertising. I focused on the Star Wars topics/issues, but also pointed out they they should in general bring more RL geek issues/topics into the show.
