I have this theory that the end of fixed contrast, graded paper as in Grades 0, 1, 2, 3, etc. led to a steady, irreversible decline in the art of controlled exposure and development of films, a decline which led to the sloppy, wet equivalent of "fixing it" in PS printing.
Further, my own experiences with Multigrade and its filters changed my photographic printing abilities in the wrong direction. I never again was able to attain the print quality that I could using graded paper.
Does your mileage differ?
