Long Process - Do you use the word 'Cancel' (instead of 'Stop') to halt processes?

When stopping processes, you should use 'Cancel'... Not 'Stop'. The meaning of 'Cancel' is clearer to users, as opposed to 'Stop' which might also mean 'Pause'.
- Figure: Bad Example - Stop is an ambiguous term and can be momentarily confusing
- Figure: Good Example - Cancel leaves little room for miscommunication
Do you feel this rule needs an update?
