I have no issue with any community boycotting any business for any reason. Some boycotts are sillier than others. Personally, I think it's silly to boycott CFA over this as you have no chance of changing the CEOs mind. But that's irrelevant really. My issue is people calling for government sponsored censorship because they disagree with the guys views.
This isn't so much of changing Dan's mind here. It's more used as a symbolic gesture. The community needed to highlight what they saw as an injustice when Dan clarified his position and used it as a rallying point.

And I agree with you on your last point. He should be fought with viewpoints but not with censorship. That's a dark road to start out on.
