That means he is a faux boycotter. Anyone who remains attached to the OP's group is also admitting that they are faux boycotters as well.
That's splitting hairs though.
Drastically reducing one's spending on GOG may not technically be a full boycott, but it still causes GOG's revenues to decrease.
Therefore, there is not a clear cut binary distinction between "boycotter" and "non-boycotter" for those who of us who have drastically reduced their spending since the onset of the Devotion debacle.
Spending reducers, even if they are not full boycotters, are still very similar to boycotters in their anti-spending-on-GOG behaviors. They are close enough, aren't they?
If not, then you could always cause us "the boycotters & spending reducers" group if it makes you feel better.
There is a definitely a big difference between a non-objecting GOG customer, and a GOG-objecting/spending reducer customer. So it's not like if GOG-objecting spending reducers left the boycotter group, then they'd be in the same category as standard GOG customers.
Then you'd just have two very similar groups, with the exact same goals, instead of one group.
@op & boycott supporters:
Say you boycott gog & steam and they shut down and all your games go poof (in my case like 1500), what then? You going to gamersgate or EPIC? Going to some sleezy joint to pirate. It ain't no skin off their nose if they close up shop. I rather like having an extra online archive of purchases. I don't give a damn about your personal butthurt issues.
I am very concerned about GOG going bankrupt. I don't want that to happen.
However, I feel a stand for great justice must nevertheless be taken when things are not right with GOG.
Whilst you are correct that it is a very big concern for we boycotters/spending reducers to have GOG stay in business in order so that our libraries won't become inaccessible to us if GOG were to shutdown, IMO that doesn't
mean we should prioritize preserving our libraries at any cost.
For example, GOG blatantly lying to the public about the reason for why they banned Devotion is outrageously dastardly on GOG's part. GOG never apologizing for that lie, nor ever coming clean about the fact that it is
a lie, and also GOG never coming clean about why
they lied, and GOG never finally telling the truth about what really happened...all those things just compound and exacerbate how outrageously immoral GOG's behavior is in regards to the Devotion issue.
Is it worth turning a blind eye to all those immoral shenanigans for the sake of hopefully preserving our libraries? I would say no, it is not worth turning a blind eye. Taking a stand for what is right in matters like this is more important, i.e. calling GOG out for what they did, and insisting they make amends for it.
