The more I think about this the more I think the fault rests with REI. They (REI) are the ones that chose to locate them in the area of the store that they did. I still think it's ignorant to even sell these things as 'hammock accessories', but the world seems to be lurching harder and harder towards the side of ignorance every day, so why should the business world be left out?
If these would have been in Home Depot next to their yard hammocks, fine. They weren't and I think it's a horrible precedent to set.
That would be like putting signs on pickup trucks that say for carrying stuff only not for general driving
You cant really tell people how to use there stuff based on what someone else feels its these types of causes that ruin the power of boycott or public intervention
