I think that would be a far better approach and would carry more
weight (especially if this was done not just on TechWr-L but in pretty
much all TW trade resources) than any petition or mass boycott. After
all, a well-done review (and you do have to give praise where praise
is due) will help them market the tool for its good features and
persuade them to revisit feature design for not so good features.

Nothing motivates someone more than praise.
