"So you like to be a part of mob action? Nice. Really conservative."

From Merriam-Webster's dictionary...

    Main Entry: 1mob
    Pronunciation: 'mäb
    Function: noun
    Etymology: Latin mobile vulgus vacillating crowd
    1 : a large or disorderly crowd; especially : one bent on riotous or destructive action
    2 : the lower classes of a community : MASSES, RABBLE
    3 chiefly Australian : a flock, drove, or herd of animals
    4 : a criminal set : GANG; especially often capitalized : MAFIA 1
    5 chiefly British : a group of people : CROWD
    synonym see CROWD
    - mob·bish /'mä-bish/ adjective
If you have to engage in hyperbole by likening consumers voting with their dollar to rioters and criminals, you've lost the argument.
