Alright, let me start by saying, that I found it rude for it to be assumed I am not friends with Jerry Jacobson. I am not bragging about it, I am just stating a fact. He attends an Akron RR Club...

I agree with Ben here. I think that this thread has gone too far. It would be in everyone's best interest to move on. These photos have become a controversial matter, and opinions will differ too...

Alright, I admit, I don't necessarily understand the 'blurry' rejection. If what you are describing is their definition of 'blurry', why don't they just call it 'soft?'

I was never saying that...
