This thread is amusing and entertaining.

Interesting to see so many not getting it yet.

Mirrorless is NOT about EVF vs OVF or mirror box vs no mirror box.

Mirrorless is about having a constantly fed image sensor. And having a constantly fed image sensor is the only way cameras can evolve. That way data from the image sensor can be read and analyzed continually right up to the actual exposure.

Having a mirror blocking the light path is like saying farewell to eye focus, zebras, focus peaking, spot on focus accuracy and a lot more - and not to forget what will pop up in the future. A constantly fed image sensor - that is the great thing!

In my case:

Problem is - in my case - that Canon does not offer any serious mirrorless option. So like several others I slipped away from adapting Canon - drifted elsewhere. And happily so!

My Canon 7DII is lying idle - feel the my super compact and light weight Sony A6300 is a much better grab and go tool

If you want a camera for hobbyist use, i.e. which you can leave alone for weeks at a time and do as little shooting as you like with, you can be satisfied with mirrorless, after all the WYSIWYG is cute. If you needed to use the 7D II for the kind of purpose it was really designed for with its 10fps and advanced AF, you would have found it more useful.

In fact this whole thread is about people like you who get the wrong camera for themselves. Why blame the camera. You could read before you bought the camera, couldn't you?
