When is a boycott not a boycott?

You spot some funny things on Facebook. Today, I come across the group “Boycott Channel Four Advertisers“:

To boycott any company that advertises during the ‘Diana in the Tunnel’ programme. If Channel uses the photo of Diana dying the then advertisers who appear during the advert breaks should be boycotted.

Er, except that to know who is advertising on it, one would have to watch the programme, wouldn’t one? Something tells me this is the latest brainchild of a Channel 4 executive.
