      I understand your sentiment, but this is the kind of behavior we should be encouraging, not saying “thanks but no thanks, loser.” They DO deserve thanks because taking a principled stand on this issue is incredibly hard and requires a Herculean effort even to say what they did say. Let’s celebrate that and hope it inspires others to do the same.
