Boycotting a Boycott

Amazon Web Services kicked off WikiLeaks last week. This statement explains that WikiLeaks was violating the terms of service, including a requirement "you represent and warrant ... that use of the content you supply ... will not cause injury to any person or entity."  It's pretty obvious that WikiLeaks violated that term on a Guinness Book of Records scale.  So it was perfectly correct and proper for Amazon to bounce them, and persons of sense commended them for doing so.  See, e.g., Sen. Joe Lieberman.

Well, the loony lefties at change.org actually think that Amazon did something wrong.  Really, I'm not making that up.  They have this petition to boycott Amazon until it knowingly becomes an accessory to espionage.

I, for one, am boycotting the boycott.  I placed an order with Amazon yesterday.
