But the producer is free to keep on producing the work- It is the
consumer who decides what to consume or not! If you boycott something
you are not restraining anyones actions but your own. Thats the beauty
of it.

"Good Luck Artists!

Unlike all of those who'll join in such a boycott, right?
Ive been boycotting Israelli and Turkish films for years now. What
does THAT makes me? An antisemite antiturk bigot? I also boycott films
from Egypt (Visual poison ivy) AND Chile (Ouch!!!).
So if you boycott Hollywood fare you are anti American?
