During the show the Tank Team mention the boycott of Amazon.com as suggested by Daniel Ellsberg. Since its inception Tank Riot has provided links to to Amazon.com for products mentioned in the podcast. The merit of a boycott of Amazon.com is being debated on the "interwebs" and we at Tank Riot understand there are different sides to the issue. For Tank Riot to go "all in" on an Amazon.com boycott would involve a lot of manual deletion of hard coded links. This would involve a lot of work that may not have much political payoff. So instead we will provide you with some links about the boycott so you can make your own decision. If the actions of Amazon.com bother you, please shop elsewhere.
