I do wish that people would READ posts carefully before they respond. I was very careful to say "do not recommend." Now this may simply mean that they consider pre-soaking unnecessary. BUT there may be a definite, unspecified reason for stating this. I personally assume the latter reason.Both Kodak and Ilford do not recommend that you presoak their films.
In general I wish people would read posts more carefully as many misunderstandings arise from this.
