Get a grip. Many big corporations act in the same way as Amazon, as it is not illegal. In fact they are compelled to conduct their business in they way they do, as their obligation is to maximise profits for their shareholders. You should be directing your vitriol to the government, who have allowed this situation to occur, rather than cutting your nose off to spite your face.

How am I "Cutting my nose off to spite my face"

All these things can be bought for much the same price from other places.

It may not be illegal but as a consumer I have the power to give my funds to those I believe are running there business for the customer and not the share holder.

You sound like you have been brain washed to believe that it's good business to maximize profits for shareholders at the cost of everything else .

Remember customer is king.

All companies who have shareholders are obliged to do everything they can to maximise profits. It is not optional. If you wanted to avoid spending money with companies who act unethically, you'd be foraging for food in the woods to take back to your cave, wearing animal skins which you have hunted for with tools you have crafted yourself out of tree branches and flint...

You are cutting your nose off to spite your face because you refuse to use a particular vendor, irrespective of the benefits, over a largely irrelevant point.

I should point out that I in no way support the philosophy of corporations not paying tax, but as stated, the blame lies with the government, not the organisations themselves. I am simply a realist.

Also remember, the customer isn't King! The customer is an integral part of the commercial model which also relies on manufacturers, distributors and vendors. Removal of one, damages all of the rest equally.

Illage I'm pretty sure those aren't particularly special prices, you can get mass effect cheaper on zavvi.
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.
