Re: new canon vs novelverse: worst case scenario

If it were just a matter of vocabulary, I'd be more inclined to let it be. But the thing is, when people confuse canon with personal opinion, it leads to false beliefs like the idea that Paramount or CBS is trying to "tell people what to like," because they're treating two completely unrelated definitions of "canon" as though they were equivalent. And so they're just getting themselves upset over nothing, or feeling restricted when they don't have to be. I'm just trying to explain that they have no need to worry, because canon actually has nothing to do with them or their preferences and choices.
