At this point, Palmer's "guidelines" and nomograph are largely dismissed by most expert brewers. The correlation between RA and SRM exists, but Palmer's numbers are way off.

I think you're taking this way to personally.

However, I still maintain that if you take off more than 1 point out of 3 for a category that contains multiple attributes, that's not right.
