Flaming advertisers

Dear wormies:

A suggestion regarding abnoxious advertisers on the net.  Flame them, and 
flame them good.  Also point out that you will not buy their product 
SPECIFICALLY because they advertised in this newsgroup.  Say this even if 
you don't really mean it.  Inducing boycotts is not what these people 
want, and if netters present a unified front against unsolicited 
advertising, maybe the practice will never get going.
