I bet you didn’t know where the word BOYCOTT (it’s a Eponyn) came from:
Faced with economic hardship in the 1800s, a group of Irish tenant farmers petitioned their absentee landlord for reduced rent. Instead, the landlord sent his land agent, Charles C. Boycott, to evict the tenants. In response, the tenants and their supporters enacted a plan. They didn’t greet Mr. Boycott or conduct any business with him. Locals refused to work in his house, field, or stable. The mail carrier didn’t deliver. Later, newspapers used the term to describe any voluntary abstinence from buying, selling, or dealing with someone as a means of coercion or protest.
