The fraud ratio we are discussing here with .INFO is running about 1000:1 so doubt the boycoot impact would be adverse to "land rushers"...keep in mind that many of these so-called "land rushers" are likely registrars or their associates using "private" submission lists...so that way they're making money on pre-registrations that never get submitted while pocketing some names too...about the only harm one would see to such boycotts would be to Afilias and its registrars...for the end-user such blocking would be actually be a SERVICE since most .INFO domains will be useless anyways and certainly not informative...about the only real uses for .INFO will be for email spam domains, banner ad servers, and GOTO redirects.
