We read these threads because these are basic issues that all users, from the prosumer level on up, are still fuzzy about: the main precepts of color management and digital capture.
Unfortunately what we get when we read, beyond the childish remarks, are industry "pros" (those with the time, inclination, and I assume training to write books and start websites) who can't agree on basic definitions of what they're talking about- we're not talking about PS "different ways of doing different things", we are talking about what should be basic information that everyone should agree upon by now. You would think.
So, like the rest, I'll read, glean what I can, check that against other information, against my own tests and common sense, and make an evaluation. As to whether the earth is round or flat.
