18. Won't work any better than the Baptist boycott.
Remember that? THe Southern Baptists were going to shut down Disney by boycotting it, for the company's support of medical benefits for gay partners? Remember how well it worked?

That's right. It didn't.

Doing this may give your ego a little massage, make you think you're really doing something, but you're fooling yourself. Do something real. Push for the Democratic Party to reform media and antitrust laws. Oh, that's not a romantic issue and it won't give you points with your intellectual snob buddies, but it might just help save the country.
