in thread Boycott O'Reilly

ever heard of the 1st Amendment?

Adding to what Abigail-II said, the 1st Amendment only applies to the government. Individuals have the right to choose to stop buying from a company for any reason they want, and have a right to pursuade others to do so (which is also protected under the 1st Amendment). As it happens, the rest of us have a right to think Wassercrats is a kook and likewise pursuade others to do so.

I wanted to explore how Perl's closures can be manipulated, and ended up creating an object system by accident.

    According to a quick reading of some stuff here: there is legislation penalizing US citizens or corporations for participating in unsanctioned (by Uncle Sam) boycotts led by foreign governments and requiring reporting to the US of requests to honor such a boycott.

    Scary stuff.
