None of the posters here have the capacity to stop others from posting - only the mods can do that - so perhaps for the sake of some peace we can all just make an effort to see everyone's point of view.

For example yes, it is true that boycotting works in some instances and yes, the numbers would be a curious thing to see. But it would also quash any attempt to keep an LGBT voice on this matter on the forums. So, while interesting, it is perhaps understandable that someone perceiving a suggestion of boycotting as a 'shut up or leave' statement (a very large number of which we've been attacked with; this is not a small issue) and taking it as such. After all it'd be interesting but given BW:A's history of not communicating it probably wouldn't do anything except crush the number of people vocally supporting this matter. If anything I'd say more support and more voices would be better.
Never thought it made me unique. But I don't recall seeing suggestions from some of the posters who go about calling out "a concerned troll" or "a troll" when I've said I want it in and offered up suggestions for different ways it can be implemented past "just make it so all original companion stories can be redone" Everything I've suggested is ways to put it in as additional new content.

My newest suggestion was on the thinking of, maybe the old companions aren't SGRable storyline wise, so why not go with the companions that can't be romanced yet. Admittedly, that was more M/M options than F/F, but that's more of a lack of F/F options. I did quite like the SI suggestion I made, but then I never did care for Khem as much as others.

As for the boycott suggestion being a "shut up or leave", eh, never thought of it that way. More of a lets see how many are actually in the "cant play without SGR" or "put it in or we'll leave" crowd. If it's as big as some seem to make it out to be, it'd be interresting to see if I was infact wrong on the thought of "most players dont care one way or the other"
