Not me.  I said they are a very good starting point.  Sometimes I use 
them, sometimes I want to see what I can do without any auto 
settings.  It doesn't really matter because the great thing with RAW 
is that you can always go back to the original "negative" if you 
don't like what the conversion settings have done.  I'm still trying 
to convince a group of photographers working on a documentary project 
that they should always use RAW but they just don't get it.  Jpegs 
take up so much less space and they print "just fine"!!!!   ARRRGGHHH!!!!
