    Is there also a swarm of guys following just behind them applying new stickers because hey, available surface?

      I see that you're familiar with what happens to the streetlight and telephone poles on Haight St.

        I thought the Flyer Nazi took care of both sides of that all by himself?

          Some poles get scraped clean before he even gets to them. I haven't bothered to ask the particular Sisyphus about "who" and/or "why" on the occasions I've seen it happening.

    Why *aren't* there the equivalent of Roomba's doing things like clearing off stickers, streetcleaning, getting dog poop off sidewalks, painting over graffiti and the like?

    Overzealous public works robots seem like they would accompany this grim meathook future.
