Re: Should Simon Pegg cut off middle finger out of respect for canon?
Chill, grasshopper. This is what you call a "joke thread", and I don't see how we're making fun of Doohan?
Agreed. We're making fun of the well-known obsessiveness that Trek fans tend to have over "canon;" there's absolutely no ridicule against Doohan implied or intended in anything I've seen here.
Doohan's involvement is peripheral and random at best. It could just as easily be over any other obscure physical characteristic of TOS -- Pine must wear a toupee, the Enterprise bulkheads must be made of plywood, Yelchin must wear a big bushy wig, etc.
