Take a chill pill dude , I could care less (how aware) you are to produce scans, I am making no assumptions. Its a known fact that sharpening at time of scan can produce artifacts and accent grain.
You need to have a cup of tea or something or grow a thicker skin.

I am aware how to produce scans.

As it happens I scan without any sharpening or contrast adjustments whatsoever ("raw") and I almost never sharpen in post-processing.

However as this subject is off limits here, and not germane to the current topic, I'll leave it there.
