Cancelpoodle definition

(Or Cancelbunny) A manifestation of the Cancelmoose in the form of a more selective (and probably not automated) way to cancel Usenet articles.
The term became common during the alt.religion.scientology wars of the mid-90s, during which Cancelpoodles were used. The "poodle" part is an allusion to one of the parties obliquely involved in the fray, who an earlier well-known witticism had compared to "a psychotic poodle".
