Ed, thanks for bringing this to our attention. I will be writing Mr. Stoffer a letter.
I deleted a response to your post. I don't wish for my forum to be a place where personal insults are tolerated, even with regards to someone as misguided as Mr. Stoffer. I trust all will understand. I encourage discussion of this issue, but simple name-calling will not achieve anything, and at worst, simply reflects poorly on the collectors community. I would advise anyone wishing to write Mr. Stoffer to stick to the facts and avoid angry outbursts that will only serve to derail meaningful conversation.
I strongly suggest that others write to Mr. Stoffer as well, in addition to the Citizen.
