As in my other reply, this is not a personal attack or flame war directed toward you. It is virtually impossible for a consumer to totally avoid every product without economically supporting unfair worker exploitation, destruction to the environment or supporting some oppressive political regime. I do it, sometimes consciously and more often sadly ignorant. There are gasoline companies I will never patronise. Yet my old Volvo is contributing to global warming everytime I attend radical environmentalist events running on independent dealer fuel. I just bought my girl a diamond. Now, I know a great deal about the 4C's, settings and appraisals. I drove my gemnologist nuts demanding a diamond from a source that didn't finance one of the several horrific conflicts in our world. There are times when you have to take a stand, painfull or financially difficult as they are.
