Default Poll: Would you boycott?

After reading on the Star Trek Online forums that some so-called fans will be boycotting the movie, I'm taking a poll just to gauge whether any of those people are so worried about canon that they'll boycott the only opportunity to help the Star Trek franchise survive.

Anger, fear, agression... those lead to open seats for fans willing to make up their own minds.

This is retarded. NO I'm not going to boycott something I've never seen before.

Ugh....Fanatics...
Boycott the New Enterprise...that I've seen.

I tend to agree, I see no point in boycotting something you (you as in a general term for a person, not you specifically) haven't seen, because you don't fully understand it until you do. However, some feel differently and have expressed as much. If they wish to do so, I simply say - let them.

Yeah - they 'claim' that they'll boycott...

Then you find them in their parents' basements downloading bootlegs of the film...

After seeing the second trailer? Are you nuts? There's no way I'd miss a groovy sci-fi film like that! There are too few good ones, as it is!

Precisely, how can anyone be a true Star Trek fan and not be open to seeing this film? There are always possibilities, as Spock said, therefore some Trekkies need to have an open mind!
