Let's take it all down to the root of the problem. Master photographer vs amateurs. I think an accurate paraphrase here is, "Look at all of these amateurs! They're ... they're ... amateurs! Why can't they be like that master photographer over there? Look here, a picture of a cat! And another one! And it's lith printed, photographed with IR using a Holga!"

Gee, I'm having a Visine moment here. Oh, my dry eyes. Not a tear in them.
