I will buy no more from Carbonite, ProFlowers, Citrix, QuickenLoans, or LegalZoom

I am pro-free speech. If MSNBC or DailyKos or whoever wants to spew hate, that is their right. The left, however, also uses the tactic of targeted boycotts to suppress speech and, on Sunday, they succeeded in getting Carbonite and ProFlowers to suspend their advertising on Rush Limbaugh's radio show. They both continue to advertise on left-wing outlets whose hate-speech far exceeds Limbaugh's joke at the expense of the 31-year political advocate who wants other people to pay for her to have sex. As Prof. Jacobson wrote (before the ProFlowers announcement):

We need to send a message that we will not acquiesce in the new left-wing tactic of trying to force conservatives off the air by targeting advertisers.

Carbonite is the place to start.

I will not buy from either company in the future.

According to PC Magazine, users rate Carbonite as "poor" anyway. Some of Carbonite's many competitors are listed here. MORE: Some top Carbonite competitors are:

For flowers, try 1-800-flowers, which has worked well for me, or FTD instead.

UPDATE: LegalZoom is also pulling its ads from Rush. Try instead.

Citrix Systems has "discontinued" advertising on Rush.

QuickenLoans has "suspended" advertising on Rush.

LifeLock has not caved.

Actually, Carbonite is not that highly ranked as an online backup solution anymore.

In the early days they were very highly regarded but it does not seem they have kept up with the competition.

We have online backup reviews of the competing services mentioned above at our website.
