Oh man, we went through this a while ago on the e-mail discussions.  I do
think color correction SHOULD be used, as well as other techniques as that
is how it is done professionaly.  The problem is, as you know yourself,
people refuse to read rules.  And each time you try to give the general
population more artistic freedom, it just comes back at us with more people
using it in a way exploited.
