Please stop calling the pig and asking him to go 'on strike'.

I am only going to say this once, you have been warned.

The pig has gotten ~15 calls (lost track) about this over the weekend.  From now on, anyone who calls asking the pig to go on strike to protest [DELETED] will have their Skype IP banned.  No more warnings, you will be banned on the spot, no questions asked.

As for the analysis, going 'On Strike' is one of the dumbest things you can do.  Abstaining from something you want to do, over idiotic stuff that happens in the rest-of-world, is at best a futile exercise in masochism.  Remember that when Yue-bing was running amuck in the fansubbing / anime world, the pig and his friends took action to counter this.  In the end, they hunted down Yue-bing and [DELETED] her.  No one, no group, no anything even considered going 'On Strike' to 'protest' Yue-bing's actions, indeed it took a small, tight-knit group of small animals getting off their asses and doing something about it to end the problem. 

And before you accuse the pig or any other small animal of advocating or condoning violence, you have to understand that small animals live in a different world and society than people do.  More often than not, small animals are not exactly at the top of the food chain, so they really only get riled up and fight when they absolutely have to. 

For now, you are still free to discuss [DELETED] with the pig, just don't suggest, ask, hint, etc. that he go on strike, or do something else dumb b'cos of it.
