I don't think boycotting BP would hurt them in any way. Many people around the globe including you and me use their products (not just limited to petroleum) every day. Let’s say boycotting BP does in fact hurt them greatly financially. What does this accomplish? The big wigs in the company that made these bad decisions will still work there, will still be paid, and will probably lay people off just so their pockets stay fat. The company as a whole did not cause this disaster it was the greedy decisions made by the honchos.
So who suffers? The little people will suffer. The owners of gas stations that sell BP gas who have nothing to do with this disaster will suffer. Their livelihood will now be threatened. All the employees that make up low-level blue-collar jobs will suffer. White-collar jobs will suffer. All this while the men and/or women at the top are still sitting pretty.

And many ATSers didn't agree with what I said here:
Soon we will all forget about this oil spill...
If most people don't care about this spill now, they surely will forget this spill in no time! It looks like I was correct .

I'm still trying to figure out how to give stars and flags to a thread, but this one deserves them.

They may not care now...
But they will when this ecological and economical disaster affects them and it will very soon!!
Don't be discouraged; a new day is dawning in America. It's sad that so many innocents will be affected but a huge change will happen very soon.
