Indeed. As is characteristic of false dichotomies.
I was once asked by a prominent journalist where I stood on this. I
replied that it was a boring question. And that once I had defined
myself as deletionist on science topics, where we don't want cruft and
pseudo, and inclusionist on humanities topics, where we really cannot
always know what the academics will turn to next.
When people from TV come asking for a (quote) "passionate deletionist" -
- we're well past the time of being able to talk sensibly in such polar terms.
