A proponent of postage meter stamps had no patience with stamp collectors. In extolling the virtues of meter stamp collecting he stated that it "...is not bogged down with minute detail, such as measurements in micrometers; counting the frazzles or perforations; squinting at how thin, or how thick are some spots in the postage stamp paper; whether original gum, or very little stickum on its back side; or whether heavily or lightly cancel marked; and all other such folderol which the persons having merely assembly-line mentalities impose upon postage stamp collecting. All such are no more than a futile exercise in nit-picking."
The rant, which goes on at some length, appeared in the book An Introduction To The Hobby of Collecting The Postage Meter Stamps (1965). The author/publisher was Mr. R. H. Harsh, who some might say was well named.
