A New Grading System Meets a Critic's Empty Words

When physicians decided to go from performing surgery on cancerous tumors to adding pumping chemicals into patients' bodies and then exposing them to targeted radiation was there a clamor by the public to call this "a bit adorable"?  Actually it has continued as the protocol for many, even though to a non-medically trained ear, it sounds "a bit frightening.
