I have an example of a print using CMY that I am sure you will agree is
black. As a matter of fact, it is probably the blackest black I have ever
obtained photographically. I could post it, but you would have no way of
knowing if it was a valid depiction of the work. Do you want me to send it
to you?

It was not an order, it was a simple request (note the use of the word
"please".) However, I still stand by my previous statements that regardless
of how you compute conversions and what the K in CMYK stands for, I still
doubt that you can get a pure black from just C + M + Y.
