...I am not sure APUG is in fact Ilford's forum despite Simon's helpful presence here...You are a victim of the confusing terminology used in vBulletin that describes categories as "forums." I suspect AgX was referring to this category/forum, which is titled as follows,
Forum: [Partner] ILFORD PHOTO
rather than all of APUG.
...I do think that it is not his responsibility to pick up every problem that someone asserts is an Ilford product problem...I don't know whether it's in his job description or not, but he sure seems to make it his responsibility. :D
Yes Sal, I refered to this "Partner Forum". And yes, the Apug terminology can be confusing.

I have seen this....and once again I have checked with Technical Service, we have no complaints AT ALL recorded regarding this issue, but we did have this discussed last year when we had one last year
and examined the film.
I have asked Technical service to give me a possible cause and I will post it in due course.
As part of our QC procedures we process and expose and process on average 400 to 600 film samples per week, we have NEVER seen this issue....ever on our samples.

It is most peculiar that so often people will complain on forums about alleged film faults, yet will never send the evidence to the manufacturer for analysis.

I will most gladly send you the sample. Could you just give me a hint how to go about it and what information you need?

The problem I had with 120 Delta 400 I had never experienced either.
I shot a couple hundred rolls of film that year, and was genuinely surprised!
