I'm sure that you, along with Frank, are reasonable people but what got to me was that having posted a reasonable and hopefully calming explanation of where I was coming from and why I held the views I did I was told-

Anyone who ever wrote that the advantage of RAW is that it is "uncompressed" doesn't know the first thing about software. I'm guessing you never actually saw such a claim, but rather misinterpreted a comment about lossy versus lossless compression.


Now the puzzle here is do you consider me just a thicko or a liar to boot, either way I obviously need patronising. Having calmed down somewhat I appreciate that you probably meant neither but it really pee'd me off.

There were also one or two minor points beforehand that got my back up, simply saying that 'saving for web sucks' for instance ignores the point that it is in fact a very useful item for those that build websites, as I do, having taught myself the basics over the last couple of years. All these small things were creating an illusion of Gods and supplicants and I'd just about had enough of it.

Anyway, the matter is closed as far as I am concerned, I can't say that I'm convinced about the jpeg efficiency argument for various reasons, but there you go.

You're right; I meant neither, but in hindsight, I can see how it would have come off that way. I apologize for that.
