      Not that I really think boycotts mean very much, but I'm compelled as a Buddhist to respect the Eightfold Path:

      » Right Understanding
      » Right Thought
      » Right Speech
      » Right Action
      » Right Livelihood
      » Right Effort
      » Right Mindfulness
      » Right Concentration

      Google has violated several of these, which compels me to disassociate.

      I bought Cisco instead.

      •  Cisco? enabler of the Great Firewall of China? (0+ / 0-)

        You should really do your research a bit more than acting hastily.

        I'm not the biggest fan of Google but they're miles ahead of Cisco when it comes to ethical behavior.

          offerings I'm certain are squeaky clean because I was born yesterday, and I can't see a reason in the world why research would be called for.  There. Is that what you wanted to hear?  

          Everyone's a smug, self-righteous, finger-wagging ethicist until you find out what products they support.

          My ethics are my business and I do a damm fine job of them. Go away.

            Your original snark was indistinguishable from the other comments.

            And when I respond in earnest you lash back?

              I'll admit it.  Chippy juveniles on this site with lots of personal criticism based on zero facts are beginning to get to me.

              And I told you to go away.
