Over compress?  The normal, and only really valid, practice with black & white documents is lossless compression, where that term has no meaning.

There are those who don't understand that JPEG is intrinsically unfit for bitonal material and line graphics of any kind.  If you're dealing with the output of such, then you may indeed have "overcompressed" material.  But I believe the people here all know better
