I made a question at History about a month ago.
And I received a new answer ( the second one ).
In that, he/she says,
Although most people don't care about it too much nowadays, still it is very hard to avoid cherrypickers nowadays. So if you prefer to keep it simple and afraid of making mistakes, JUST SHAKE HANDS, it's much easier that way.
What would it mean? ( There seems to be no appropriate definition according to my dictionary. )
1 A piece of equipment consisting of a large basket at the end of an extensible boom, often mounted on a truck body, and used by workers to reach inaccessible places such as power lines and tall trees.
2 A person or group that picks the best for themselves; one who cherry-picks.
3 A person or group that picks only evidence which supports an argument and ignores evidence which contradicts it; one who cherry-picks.
4 A person or device that harvests cherries, or that aids in the harvesting of cherries.
Probably I guess he would mean something by the definition of 2?
But I'm afraid I don't understand what he/she would mean by "to avoid cherrypickers" in this context.
