Dear Adobe Gripes #14306 & #14940

"Stop changing shorcuts in Photoshop! Why is 'R' the rotate canvas tool, it's useless!"

"Why is the CS4 R key shortcut now to rotate the document? Do I look like someone who wants to rotate their document? And there is not shortcut for Blur, Sharpen and Smudge tools now, seriously?!"
