How are they a joke? They are of a resolution much higher than any previously available, and magnitudes better than is achievable without a spacecraft. They are comparable to the photographs of HiRes, about which you appear to have no complaint. And they are appropriate to the stated mission.
Perhaps we need to be more clear about the unstated here. I have reason to believe your characterizations have nothing to do with the stated mission of the LROC, but instead are addressed towards something that was never a mission objective.
To wit, I believe you are basing your entire line of discussion on the idea that LROC was intended to prove the reality of the Apollo landings, and for that end, you believe the photographs of actual Apollo landing sites that are part of the whole-moon survey fail in that task.
Is this an accurate assessment of your stance?
