boycott does not include protesting. You can protest, but that's separate from boycotting.

A boycott is an act of voluntarily abstaining from using, buying, or dealing with a person, organization, or country as an expression of protest, usually for political reasons. It can be a form of consumer activism.

Ah, well. I guess I don't really boycott anyone. Usually if I don't shop/use/donate/ whatever it's because of crappy service or something, not political reasons.

And I LOVE my crocs. I really dont care what they look like, they are shoes and comfortable. My kids love theirs and they are awesome for park and water play.

I don't know that i really boycott crocs... but I won't buy myself another pair. They are dangerous. I've slipped and tripped in those shoes way more times then I'm comfortable with. one of those times was on the cement stairs out front. Luckily I only ended up with a MAJORLY bruised a$$ but that could have been SO much worse. thank god I wasn't carryign hannah.
Plus all the slips just from my feet slipping inside the croc itself

But Brian has a pair and Hannah has a knock off pair. but I will never own another pair for myself. I just can't trust them

I had slippage issues too and i only used them for too and from the hot tub to the house which is like a 5-6 foot distance and holy crap did i slip more times than even in flip flops. Not safe.

These are my newest pair! I love them, I was able to walk around Boston in them with comfort and I like the style.

I've got a list, though the only thing I actively boycott because of politics is WalMart (just because) and Einstein Bros (partnered with H$U$). Other things are just personal preference (e.g. Taco Bell).

I just got a pair of those for my birthday but I'm exchanging them for a pair without heels. (for those that are pained by the sight of Crocs, you might feel better to know that mine are for the yard. Though I think these ones look nice enough)

Natural Balance, cause they are jerks.

(though I guess I can't call it boycotting because I have to sell it at work if people want it, but I have been switching people off it when I can)

Thanks Jessie for catching Giny's slip up (sorry Giny! :p) because I needed that laugh. The people walking past my office probably think I'm crazy because I'm sitting here alone and laughing so hard I have tears. :)

Boycotting stupid people. That's an idea, yoko. The problem is that you'll spend a lot of time alone :D There is unfortunately plenty of stupidity spread around.

We bought a chair from a small, family run furniture company when we moved to NY. Boycotting them due to awful customer service.

Any gas station this side of the river. There is no reason for gas to be $.20 higher just because I cross a bridge

While I wouldn't call it 'boycotting' I do avoid The Wal-Mart if at all possible. I hates them

But, I don't boycot from political reasons, just because someone annoyed me.
