What Should DansDeals Boycott Master Thread
« on: November 25, 2018, 11:32:53 AM »
@Dan, I'm confused. Why call out Airbnb but then shill for them for GCs from Amazon?
I have no problem calling out companies and personally boycotting. Once I start boycotting on DDMS though, I feel like it's a slippery slope.

I'd rather people boycott on their own volition than withhold information from them.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

This is clearly not a comprehensive list. A full list would no doubt include:

Spirit
The Indians, Cavaliers and all sports teams.
Chabad
Any restaurant you've eaten at in Israel
Any non-Damiel chocolate
Your wife

I still crack myself up every once in a while thinking about that Damiel argument

I'm starting to think that you have spreadsheets full of random compilations that you pull out at the right time.
by the way, it's easy to say boycott airbnb to occasional travelers. but when someone uses it to host, and makes significant cash (and they have 90-95% of the market share in many places), it's not so pashut.
