It shouldn't, as Command Prompt and PowerShell still exist as independent entities under Windows 11.  Under Windows 10, unless you specified otherwise some time back, PowerShell is the default, and under Windows 11 Terminal is now the default, but in neither situation should a direct invocation of Command Prompt or PowerShell be overridden.

I'll have to try this on my Windows 11 machine, but I would be utterly shocked if a direct invocation of cmd.exe or PowerShell would bring up Terminal.

It used to be understood that if you published and profited from a mass media platform you should also be responsible for its content. That idea is nowadays considered quaintly archaic. There is no real accountability, and almost limitless ability to post any kind of ridiculous and scurrilous nonsense. God help us.
