The real problem with people fussing over Pluto all the time is it represents the priorities of the public - preserving traditions rather than accepting facts. The pursuit of science is about building a sustainable catalog of truths, and there is no advantage in altering truths to appease nostalgia.

Yes. I think this is why I get annoyed with it.
Also… Pluto is still fucking there. Whatever we call it, however we classify it doesn’t change what it is one bit. It’s not like it’s going to lose funding or something.
