    Good for them! This is an overdue corrective for the cancel culture. Be sure to see the entire list of signers, there are some surprising ones from the Left that I might not have thought would sign something like this:

    GOING AFTER OLD LADIES NOW: Retired prof says she was doxed, threatened for opposing cancel culture.

    After a UGA alumna expressed disdain over renaming campus buildings, her personal information was shared on social media, including photos of her home.

    [​IMG]

    Sullivan commented on the tweet expressing her disapproval of the initiative.

    “I’m glad I have yet to write my yearly check to you!!!!! As a UGA Alumna, I am disgusted!!!” wrote Sullivan.​

    The troll account creator replied to the UGA tweet regarding renaming campus buildings. The anonymous author tagged the official University of Georgia and Board of Regents Twitter accounts and replied as if the account was Sullivan’s.

    "Dox" me, coming around my house can be hazordous for your health. As an insomniac (you will very rarely see me post between 7 am to noon) but i do sometimes sit in a pitch black area of my front yard, drinking a beer or two, in the wee hours, just sitting and watching what is going on, on my block. I like to be where I am not expected to be, to see what happens when I am "not around".

    Frankly cancel culture should be canceled with extreme prejudice.

    Normal people, "I disagree with what you said"

    Cancel culture person "let's see what your employer thinks about what you said"

    More like you, your family your cats and your dogs should not exist because you offend me.

    I find it oxymoronic that people who would defend defamatory anti Christian art work to their last breath, suddenly hate a statue that's been there for 3/4 of a century or more, without complaint.

    No offense too small, no complainant too petty as they grasp at anything that would give meaning to their pathetic shallow lives.
