Are you asking yourself? You are the person who started a thread calling for people to be punished for their beliefs.

I agree with you. I as well say that thoughts must be punished.

People who want to violate the Second Amendment should have their lives ruined.

Is he completely away from the company? will he continue to make profits from it?


Going off of memory here, but I believe he was stepped down in some capacity after his idiot decision to dip in on the NFL kerfuffle, then more recently was forced out as chairman of the board for his probably not racist but even more idiotic decision to bring up Colonel Sanders and racism. He is however majority shareholder

You keep repeating this ... as if anyone should care either way. Good for you. you're moving to a new cybersecurity program. Kind of irrelevant to the OP's rant against racist big wigs and corporations indirectly supporting racism.

You have your principals... and you're acting on them. Have fun with that. Repeating that same post does nothing to validate your post or invalidate any other post or sentiment.

While what the founder of the company has said and done in recent times is disgusting, I don't see how completely boycotting the company will help. So far he has been removed as much as can be done, he no longer is part of operations.

If the company rebrands itself with a new name and management and the original guy has no shares in the company, would that be sufficient? I mean to say, there are a lot of people who work at the various stores and rely on the paycheck. Unless they knowingly contributed to the bigotry, why punish them? What of the various franchise owners, men and women who invested possibly all their money for the chance at prosperity and a better life for themselves and their families.

that would be the key for me if I had any skin in this

people are going to keep eating/ordering pizza. if papa john's disappeared, some other pizza company would fill the void and employees with pizza joint experience would be sought (til technology finishes off those jobs entirely).

It's much like the industry I'm in. Doesn't really matter if one company collapses/leaves the local market. People keep having accidents and making claims. Somebody has to work those claims - though technology eats some of them every year - doesn't matter if it's public or private insurance, old carrier or new. The first people who get re-hired when insurers go under are the frontline claims people. Then tech people, then managers. Higher level bosses and hr types are usually the last re-hires as that's where the most merges seem to happen.

@Sturgis,
People have different opinions and demands in this type of situation. Not everybody will know about this issue concerning this company. That it might affect this company just a little bit might be enough to warn other CEO's that bigotry is not acceptable. As a minority in this country who suffered from bigotry, I'm a bit more touchy about this subject.

I mean to do it.

In the future, all of the money that I would have been paying to Symantec, will be going to McAfee instead.

This thread is about punishing people for having objectionable opinions.

I am punishing Symantec for having objectionable opinions.

I am also justifying the general tactic of punishing people for having objectionable opinions.

That post expressed that my resolve to switch to McAfee is unshaken by the post that I was responding to.

If Norton/Symantec begins taking a pro-gun-rights stance, let me know. I still have a few months left on my subscription. It's not too late for me to turn auto-renew back on in my account. I haven't bought a subscription to McAfee yet.
Last call. Unless I see some evidence that Norton/Symantec has begun supporting our Constitution and civil rights, I'll be placing an order to McAfee later today.

You might want to do some research into McAfee.
