Would you boycott an event if a significant amount of the gate receipts supported a pedophile?
This debate is raging in one of my Yahoo groups so I thought I would bring it here. There's a major annual event which we all love and some of us derive some income from as vendors. It has recently come to light that one of the founders is an accused pedophile. There doesn't seem to be any doubt of his guilt, he has re-offended several times while using his considerable resources and manipulating the system to avoid going to trial. This person is no longer a primary shareholder, but he does hold something like 30% of the stock and earns over $150,000 in dividends from the annual event. So, if you were a regular attendee of this event, if it was an event that you loved and perhaps earned money at selling your wares, would you boycott it to avoid a portion of your money going to support this guy?
