As humans, we see, and perceive images differently as exemplified by the comments on this very post. Candidly speaking, if you know of a site similar to this where the screening process is perfect or pretty darn close to it, let me know since I would like to start contributing there myself!

Looking at the original TIF file (had to share it as a JPEG since Imgur apparently doesn't let you upload whatever size you want anymore), I see no evidence of that. I even made that clear in my appeal, but unfortunately the head screener still didn't see it that way. That's also what bothers me a lot: there is just no way to make a strong case for what I am seeing on my computer screen. I always just have to run on luck and hope that the HS has a different opinion, which is at best a 50/50 chance.
Just want to make it clear that it is nothing against you at all and I don't mean to rub you the wrong way if I have. I'm just frustrated at the entire process as of late and things going one way when I think it should have gone the other way. Also, I agree with you and some of the other posters that the human factor makes perfect screening impossible. But I do think there needs to be a more consistent way to decide on what is acceptable and what isn't. That also goes for the extreme level of nitpicking that I sometimes see.
