Kirk, the John Douglas you mean is John S. Douglas, who was a mainstay of photography newsgroups in the 90s. One of his websites is www.darkroomphotography.com. I guess he doesn't have time to be on the net much anymore. I've known him for years, and he certainly knows I have never worked for Kodak! But his quote (which he will I presume have made when tired) has pursued me. Some people think I ought to be upset by this. I'm not. As misinformation, it doesn't rate high on my list of concerns. [...] As there is presumably no way of getting this quote out of Google, I don't really see what I can do about it. OK, gotta run - -
Maybe you meant www.darkroompro.com
The way to get that out of Google is to get it fixed on Amazon as that's where the quote originates. You could email John S. Douglas about seeing if he can edit his comment to be more accurate. Afterall, he helped with the book and I bet he'd be more than happy to help fix it. (Funny how John didn't mention being associated with the book himself.)
And if that doesn't work, you can always go to the Amazon site and you can click on the link that's on the page of reviews of your book that allows you to "report" the customer review to Amazon. I'm sure they can help you out.
It's your book that's being sold afterall, it would be good to have info associated with you be unambiguous.
About 2 or 3 weeks ago I emailed John S Douglas, (nothing to do with this thread) and had no reply. Now I know why, someone has just sent me this link and suggested that I should update participants in this thread:
John S Douglas
For part II of this thread/reply, go to:
Dr Shneour, or as he likes to be called now Professor Shneour is a dead end. I've had 3 email conversations now and it's quite obvious he has very little knowledge of Rodinal.
That's not to disparage any analysis he might have done, he just feels it's unimportant, he has better things to think about :D
So read what you want into this post. Any book that quotes from such an unwilling reference is not worth buying :D
