The OP unfairly characterized those who post-process their images as either lazy or of having poor taste, and you're doing the same for those who prefer to see what they can do when limiting themselves to the processing that can be set up to be performed in-camera upon the pressing of the shutter release.

I tried to explain that that's not exactly my thought here ... it's not so much about the decision to shoot jpeg (which I can respect, though it's not what I do).  It's about what I read when someone not only shoots jpeg, but for some reason, decides to declare that a posted image was "SOOC".  To me, that reads as a disclaimer, like the photographer is apologizing for not doing better.  (Admittedly, that's not always the intent; sometimes it's just pure technical info).

If I've offended any jpeg shooters, I apologize.  As I said, there are undoubtedly countless jpeg-only shooters who are much better photographers than I, and I freely admit to being lazy about many things.  It was a reaction to the OPs comments and a bit overstated, but I think you get my point.
