I wouldn't say that too loudly around here. Rodinal is the world's oldest film developer, and is indeed "magical". I'm fairly sure, everyone here has at least 1 bottle of it in their kit (I have 2, plus 2 Studional).

Sounds as though you've tried it, and didn't like it. That's fine, that's on you. But personally I wouldn't deter anyone from experiencing the magic that comes from printing (or scanning) a negative souped in Rodinal.
