Writer's Block: Supersize me

Have you ever boycotted a company or product? If so, what was it, and what caused you to boycott it?

Best Buy had a really appalling video ad campaign online. When I wrote in to complain specifically about the method used (whole-page takeover, loud, high-bandwidth video) their customer service goon wrote back to say that advertising was necessary to let customers know when their sales were. Way to miss the point.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
