Yes, photographs have been manipulated (or, to use current term, "post-processed" in the age of wet photography too. But two facts about that "post-processing" should not be ignored:

- the practice was mostly restricted to monochrome printing.

- the amount of effort required served as a natural limit for the degree of change.

The ease with which the processing is performed on digital files is such that the process is more and more "overdone" for the aesthetic sensibility of some (obviously, the OP is among those).

He is not calling for any dictatorial intervention. He appears to be searching ("I would love to start a forum...") for those whose taste matches his. However, since this site is about the gear and not about the aesthetics, he came to the wrong place.
