Over the years I've taken a lot of heat for defending Margulis.

When I read "Professional Photoshop" I had no idea who these 
"calibrationists" were that Dan gets so riled about.

I've since met a few of them, on the various lists that I 
partake in. <g>  I won't mention names.

I agree that Margulis (like any other "expert") should be 
taken with a few grains of salt.  But I'm way grateful for 
the lessons I've learned from Dan, and I believe these 
lessons have saved me loads of grief over the years.

The grief I do experience is with making "color management" 
work, and arguing with the CM gurus.
