Exercising my Vague Caution

Blonde Marina-looking bimbo just told me that my sticker campaign is "a Federal crime" and "disrespectful" and that "the board is taking action".

I'd say they're "appropriately disrespectful", actually.

    Is this the blonde marina bimbo who works at Citiscape? She's awful.

    Here's an official security opinion: Adding the "snarky" or "edgy" text does not modify or diminish the purpose/mission of the CCTV sign.

    The purpose of the sign is to get the dumber among us to look up and see the camera, with the intention to deter. Cameras can be used as deterrents, but only if said idiot actually notices the camera. A deterrent unnoticed is not a deterrent.

    I can't help but wonder what federal statue she thinks this violates. I mean, the worst this could qualify as is graffiti, which I'm pretty sure is only criminalized by local or maaayyybe state-level laws.

    How'd she know you were the one behind it? Did she "catch you in the act"? (And if so, why didn't she try to perform a citizen's arrest, thus upholding whatever federal law she thinks you were breaking?)

    But asking her to explain herself would just mean having to listen to even more of her garbage.

    Sorry to hear the stronger adhesive wasn't enough. New idea - make it harder to get a fingernail underneath to peel them off? This kind of stuff is used on car vinyl wraps (and industrial equipment labels) so the edges don't flake up. Sets as clear smooth "plastic". Starting to get expensive though.

    "FEDERAL LAW PROHIBITS MODIFYING, DEFACING, OR TAMPERING WITH THIS SIGN"

  8. For the holidays, every member of your board needs to be gifted a copy of The Inspection House.

    Also, I <3 pretty much every action of yours in this whole saga.

    THIS NOTIFICATION WILL SOON BE AVAILABLE IN BRAILLE.

    FOR THE HARD OF SEEING.

    I adore you. For all that you do.

    Sincerely,

    I like how "disrespectful" is an insult by default for some people. People who are apparently unaware of the littany of historical atrocities allowed by those too respectful to intervene...

    Not that this counts, of course. This is just a wonderful excuse to deflate some bullfrogs and engage in the simple joy of impressively dedicated and petty vandalism; as American as apple pie.

    I agree with the guy who said you should run for your condo board. Imagine the sort of media campaign you could mount. Just handbill everyone who leaves and exits with an offer for a free slice of pizza for a bcc or paper bcc on an email to the current members asking them to resign if they had anything to do with approval of the inward-pointing sign, and nominating you for "director at large in absentia" which is a meaningless title on which you can more easily afford to mount a real takeover. Then you could convert one of the units to a chill lounge for musical acts with jet lag or special pizza needs or whatever.

    What's the difference between a Marina-looking bimbo & a Pacific Heights-looking bimbo?

    Meanwhile, back in Blighty, the gutter press and police are hot on their own brand of disrespectful but quaint vandalism:
