The one day boycott of The Local is set for April 30th! You may pledge your support in favor of The Local being more respectful of the Freedom of Speech, by not visiting The Local and not participating in The Local Forum on Thursday, April 30th.

You may signify your intention of participating in this boycott by adding your reply to this thread: "I will join and support the boycott."

If you are not a participant in the Forum, you may support the cause simply by avoiding The Local on Thursday, April 30th.

Many thanks to all in advance.

a much more effective boycott would be to start now and boycott UNTIL april 30th. think of it as a hunger strike. i will support PK's boycott of the local on any day.

Better yet, you could more effectively communicate your displeasure with the new Local by implementing a permanent or indefinite boycott.

Stick to your guns, man. Refuse to post here until they answer your demands.

I hereby pledge my support by posting as much as possible on April 30th.

Wait, is that a Thursday? Damn, that's my bowling night. Well, screw the bowling; this is much, more, important.

I feel, a lot of, commas, coming on.

Let's all feel the splendour of boycottedness, by showing the world, how much we want to boycott The Local, on April 30th, by advertising our intentions, on April 30th - yes, that's right, on the very, day, we're going to boycott, The Local, on The Local.

Oh, yes; sheer, brilliance.

Damn you PK!

What with your 'rich inner world', politically astute critique, that heightened sense of prescience, your wealth of fabulous 'contacts' and masses of well earnt respect...

I would follow you 'round the moons of Nibia and 'round the Antares maelstrom and 'round perdition's flame*

Why of course I will follow your lead, it's a bloody great given.

You sir are an inspiration to one and all.

Therefore, I'll meet you outside of your place of work, and we'll march on from there.

Excelsior, Bitches!

*Points for guessing the film reference. My money's on Shark to get it first.

Dock and I have decided that we will be taking personal days from work to ensure we have enough spare time to post on April 30th. Let's hope the servers can handle what is shaping up to be a very busy day.

Edit: Dock says he is going to consume a massive amount of trucker's speed in order to forgo sleep and post for 24 hours straight.

What a pitty. I will be in Las Vegas that day.

I'd love to be able to sit here and post with my fellow Locallers, but you know, free alcohol and all that...

Yeah really, one day is not enough. Nothing but a shallow symbol. Go for at least 10 years, really make that point.
