What is it with "Average Jane" & "Soccer Mom?"

Somehow, I don't think the average Jane will care too much that camera A has slightly more grain than camera B at iso 3200. She might not even know what grain is. She will definitely notice which cam will produce blurry pics of her son playing soccer.

There are countless men with digital cameras who don't know a hoot about grain/noise or much of anything about fine tuning camera settings; who keep their cameras on auto mode, etc.

Sorry, I don't mean to single you out but this is the third time I've read a term like this in this thread (and I haven't yet read the entire thread). Sadly, drpreview also uses the term "soccer mom" on the conclusion page of their review.

May I suggest the use of alternative, inoffensive, gender-neutral words such as "novice," "beginner."
