First photos with 7d - issues with increasing contrast

A serious question

Seriously.... I cannot help but wonder why anyone would want to pump up contrast to 12 and reduce brightness to -4, at any time, with any camera, in any situation.

Is this a half-baked attempt to suggest there is something wrong with the camera or is there actually some legitimate reason?

What do you intend to photograph with the camera?

Can you suggest even one situation where you would want to use such settings, and why?

What were you trying to accomplish by doing this?

I'm curious, really.
