Lifelong Boycott

My personal morality requires me to institute a lifelong boycott of any business that behaves improperly, usually some form of fraud, even if this inconveniences me by requiring me to travel far afield to shop, to pay higher prices or to go without some goods or services. If everyone did this, businesses would not dare attempt these dirty tricks. Even if my protest is so small that the affected business never notices it, other than my complaint letter, it does not matter. My own moral behaviour should not depend on whether others behave morally as well. Other people behaving badly is no excuse for me to behave badly.
