They had many reasons to make the alias, and both of those were listed. The one I posted was more of the reason they chose @ over any other identifier.

Anyhoo, I've had a little inspiration from Phanx's suggestion and I've ended up with...

/cleartarget [@target, dead] [@target, noharm] [@target, help]
/stopmacro [combat] [@target, harm] [@target, dead]
/target Auctioneer
/stopmacro [noexists]
/click AuctionsCancelAuctionButton
/click StaticPopup1Button1
/run print("Attempted to cancel auction")
The first macro, the /in command provided by an addon would error trying to call /stopmacro because it's a secure command. Also the way macros are run, the line after it would execute immediately anyway.

The second macro doesn't guarantee in any way whether or not the user has the AH up. You can run the macro right outside the building (the auctioneers still in view of the client) and the entire macro would still run.

i'd much prefer that! I did try messing about with the idea for a bit without success.
This'll be more specific and only run if the Blizzard_AuctionUI addon is loaded and opened to the auctions tab.
/run if AuctionFrameAuctions and AuctionFrameAuctions:IsVisible() then AuctionsCancelAuctionButton:Click();StaticPopup1Button1:Click(); end
