I think you missed my point (for which I apologize for not being clearer). But since you yourself put the word "canceling" in scare quotes, you're actually making my point, lol. It's the now rampant politicization and misuse of the term that I'm complaining about. No one is "cancelling" anyone. Or, at least, we used to have more accurate, less hot-button terms for it. I just don't want to see that phrase used anymore,. It has already outstayed its welcome, and it has become essentially meaningless in its over-ubiquitous use.
In other words, let's please cancel "cancel" and be done with it. ;-)
