Found a pair of anti-Causs signs today in Evergreen: "Causs.Org, We Steal Signs!, Even on Private Property!, Join Today". It had a link to www.causs.org/what_is_causs.htm for some strange reason. I guess the spammers are getting a little frustrated up here as their signs do not last long.

That is just great, even better advertising than the original CAUSS stickers, especially when they link to What_Is_CAUSS. You might consider placing a counter statement next to the Anti-sticker, just for grins.
Obviously you guys are getting someones attention.

Well, Elkster, I think you've set a record for quickest spammer annoyance, and should be proud of yourself.
I don't think that ANY of us have gotten the spammers so angry, so fast.
Keep one eye open over your shoulder and your cellphone ready to dial 911 just in case one of the spammers decides to jump ugly with you in public - always remember, it's better to humiliate them than to whoop up on them.

Same thing happened in Dallas some two or three years ago. But the big difference is, we stopped carrying M1 Garadands, 30.06's and 300 Remingtons with 20x power scopes in our pickup trucks some time back.
About the only thing we have to worry with are Armadillos, and they move so slow, you can hit'um with a BB gun.

>Sorry to be dumb, but I don't get it. What, >exactly, are these "anti-causs" signs supposed to accomplish? > >Do they think that people will check out the CAUSS website >and side with the spammers? Won't they just end up recruiting more sharks?
...and the problem with that is...?
You forgot one of the most common characteristics of the spammers: They really don't understand why anyone would think badly of their efforts to promote their businesses by hanging signs everywhere. You've read the rationalizations on here by the score: "I'm helping people", "I'm a small businessman", "I'm employing people", "I'm a member of the public so I can put my signs on public property," etc. It is pathetic that their minds are so small that they can't comprehend of a reason why anyone would be upset about it. So, yes, they probably really do think that an anti-CAUSS sign will encourage people to side with the spammers.
You see, they think that they're in the majority, and sign-haters are in the minority. Oops. That's where their signs will backfire on them: The end result will be more sharks, not less. If you find out who the spammer is, let us know, so that we can send him a big CAUSS thank-you letter! -- Remora Remora@Resourceful.com

Who says we don't anymore? It is still legal of course.

This 'dillo don't move so slow and is more than able to take care of himself should a spammer decide to take issue with his efforts. It may not be an M1 or .300 Rem, but what he does carry with him is more than enough to make said spammer very miserable.
