    You write a diary to tell us how you are not following through with the boycott. Charming.

    How's this: ABC and EVERY Disney-affiliate is blocked out on all of my TV's. No View, No Lost, No Soaps and no Oscars in about 1 month. No ABC ever again, not one show. (I did cheat a tiny bit by watching two scenes from Luke and Laura's new wedding of General Hospital on You Tube but then it was kind of in Public Domain..)

    •  I think you misread.... (0+ / 0-)

      All those shows are gone, except for 3.  I watched about 12 hours of ABC a day, not including the 3 shows I kept recording.  

      Same here for Luke & Laura and then stopped again.

      I promised my family they won't see me dragged from my home by men in black, dangling off ropes from helicopters.

        the point of kind-of a boycott. Either you find the networks practices reprehensible and you don't turn in or you do. Even watching 1 show means your not boycotting.
