Sorry Steve if you were shocked. I've never watched Foxnews nor the
person you name and whose name I read for the first time. I don't live
in the US but the word "cancel culture" has spread over the world and is
seen in my country as a fashion which I don't think I need to describe

that in yours.
I think social networks favour the trends of humans to form groups
of activists against whatever immorality, supposed or real, and
collectively harrass the people they declare guilty. When this happens
against living people, wether unknown or famous, it is just called
harrasment; when it addresses dead celebrities, we call it by the word
My position in the current debate about RMS is evolving and balancing.
