Is it  really fair to impose our standards on Joe if all he wants is sumthin' 

Yes, to some extent it most surely is. The process is called  *education*. 
When AIS shows the best, it is so that the best, clearly identified as  such, 
gets shown, and when that happens folks can see  what *best* means. There has 
tended to be some thought over  the years that the best is better to look at, 
too, you see, as in sumthin' more  purdy.   
But judged shows are not and never have been the only means by which  AIS 
--meaning the Society, its affiliates, and also its individual members  --carries 
forth its mission. No one activity can realistically  be expected to meet all 
the varied needs, interests, and   expections of the membership, or the 
public. There is much sport in  coming up with new ideas.
