I'm sure you know that Clarence's goal was not to make it easier for people to read or understand this stuff as he left all the statements I referenced in other threads as is without my comments about them there. Doing your suggestion wouldn't achieve Clarence's goal of protecting Mike Parker from answering the questions in this post:http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...&&#post6748991
Actually, I think it is a good idea for somebody to do a writeup on CR. Those of us who saw a G70 on a 1.5 gain screen and a Ruby on a Firehawk in the same room last night (before we put both on his screen) saw the effect of ANSI CR. Just ask the G70 owner. He told me it was pretty clear. But I think a knowledgeable CRT who cares about what goes into images could write such a sticky. It could have been Guy Kuo, but he isn't a CRTer right now.
It might be nice to have an intelligent writeup by a CRTer who understands this stuff so that people aren't misled about ANSI CR by posts like this one by Mike Parker:http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...&&#post6747259
that Clarence has now protected by moving my questioning of to this thread.
Maybe the name of the forum should be changed to, "Clarence's CRT Forum" and he can just make sure that anything that he doesn't want questioned, doesn't get questioned. :)
