Maybe he meant me, for my trite 1-sentence post. But I maintain I see no redeeming quality to Rodinal. Just because it has been around for 125 years and has a fan base on that account, it's still a grainy mess of a developer. Granted it's a general purpose film developer, but lye soap is a general purpose soap too. At one time it was a bath soap, shampoo, laundry and dish soap.
