    Hi, I'm new to discussion boards in general, but I read several threads on THR talking about businesses dropping clients simply because they deal in the firearms industry. Intuit was the main focus of the discussion, but there were others. I thought it might be a good idea to start a list of gun-hostile businesses? If I'm off the mark here, someone please let me know.

    I think there are other threads accusing General Mills of being anti.

    But, what we have to be careful of is rumor mongering. The other is our ability to carry through on our threats.

    For example, I have over 20 years worth of financial data in Intuit products. I'll write an email expressing my feelings, but I most likely will buy Turbo Tax 2012.

    And let's take the Intuit thing a few steps further.
    - Is Microsoft adopting an anti position? Do I need to lose Windows and convert to Linux, because Apple might have an anti position as well? Of course Linus Torvalds is from a socialist country so he might have anti easter eggs hidden in the Linux kernel.
    - And the hardware my operating system runs on. Are Intel, Seagate, Western Digital, Crucial, Sony, and 9 dozen others antis? Maybe I need to convert to an abacus, but of course those are Chinese and the Chinese are of course commies.

    Just could be a lot of the antis are what my kids call "frenemies". The Russian government is a major league anti, but they deem it acceptable for their companies to make ammo to sell to you and me. So am I feeding an anti every time I pick up a box of Wolf or TulAmmo? They are my only choice many times.

    Kind of funny that many have set up trusts using their software to get NFA devices without CLEO signature, finger prints or photo...

    I agree Paradigm. I tried to start a similar thread a few days ago, got about as much response as you have. Apparently boycotting isn't popular around here.
