Sir Lawrence is right boycotting a fair is not a good thing even in light of any mistreatment of anyone or group of anyone is not going to solve anything only end up hurting the vendors who are also are friends who we should be supporting at faire. I know for a fact that most or all of the people who where mistreated have choose to go at lest one time to faire during it's run and like JulieInTheGreen said a badly managed faire will die out no matter what we do and the good ones will stay around and yes there are faire dieing out but if you look there are a number of smaller new faire poping up you all should look at there may be one near you
