The Abuse of Topical Collectors

That is the title of a column in the May 2019 issue of The American Stamp Dealer & Collector (ASD&C) magazine. It begins:

Quote:
Topical collecting has been one of the bright spots in philately in the last 10 years.

Fair enough. Then, it continues:

Quote:
Women, children, the elderly and many others have been drawn to the area ...

I am not going to say what I think of that sentence, but you can tell author Richard Lehmann what you think by selecting [Contact Us] on the ASDA website (he is a director).

If someone were to post something like this in a mainstream publication, they'd be in a world of hurt about now.

Half a sentence taken out of context of the rest of the sentence and the sentences which may follow?
Not enough data to reach any valid conclusion, let alone make any rational complaint.

"Women, children, the elderly and many others have been drawn to the area ..."

It's a pretty strange statement, I'll agree, but what is the problem as far as you're concerned? That topical collecting is for "women, children, and the elderly"? He does say it's also for "many others"! So, let's see . . . who are the non-elderly, non-women, non-children?

My main concern: Who writes this way?
