I hope you're right, Nik...

Conceptually speaking, I'm still having trouble seeing the difference between micro-trimming and pressing. Both are hard, if not impossible to detect, both are done in some form during the manufacturing process, and both are used in a manipulative manner in order to bolster the value of the books they're being done to. So other than the stigma, which is really just a matter of perception, I don't see how they're soooo different. Maybe I'm just a little too slow on the uptake. \(shrug\)
