Unfortunately it didn't make much sense. If you're going to make a point about not being interested anything technical, don't use split grade printing to support it. From the perspective of paper curves, the Zone System etc, split grade printing on a straight print is no less complex than using a single filter, nor does it require any less knowledge of densitometry. It doesn't make any more use of your eyes than using a single filter either. If anything it is more complicated. Comments like that just propagate misinformation. If you are starting out in the darkroom, be careful what you read. Use a good, time tested book, and the publications from Ilford and Kodak available on the web.
