I don't agree. Rodinal is a very foolproof developer with an extremely long shelf life of the concentrate. Perfect for beginners. The mentioned faults can be made with every developer. Use million times prooved standard development 1:25 and given standard times and get nice results. No experiments needed at all, but of course possible. Why always complicating things? Life can be so easy - sometimes.....
