Yea I agree that the donut shape stuff is not as pleasing as a good creamy soft, but I also think bokeh is blown out of proportion. I was always told that bokeh served to separate the subject from the surroundings for the viewer, and poor bokeh was distracting. I however think we are catering to some really distraction prone observers. If you can't control your thoughts long enough to appreciate a photo, you have bigger problems than most. To me the softness of most mirrors is far more problematic than the bokeh.
