CS5, or other photo editing software, are part of technology. Technology makes our lives easier, as you have illustrated with examples - it takes lesser time to achieve the same effects that you do in the darkroom. That is precisely what technology is supposed to do. Make our lives easier. Now that we have that, we should be happy. Why complain that it makes us less of a photographer? I see photo editing software as a refined, improved darkroom. We don't have to suffer so much now.
Your definition of a photographer seems all over the place...recording things as it is, have to suffer long hours etc. I don't see why we need to suffer long hours now that we have a "better darkroom".
Stop living in the past - times have changed, you have to change too. Don't tell me you don't use a stove, a washing machine, a computer. When there are newer, better tools out there, you can make use of them - not whine about how it makes you less of who you are. Even the film to digital converts agree that digital has opened up so much opportunities in photography, with so much higher ISOs and easier post-processing. Stop trying to pretend that using photo editing software makes you unworthy of the title of the photographer, it seems to me like you are some kind of elitist trying to put yourself higher than others because you still shoot film and suffer.
