>I want to make it clear that I will go to war with CAUSS stickers in the Tri-Lakes community. We don't need them.
I'm not trying to be confrontational here, because, well, I'm pretty easygoing regarding tactics, etc.
Art, dude, I don't use stickers. I don't paint signs either. But it's only because I don't have to.
There's someone a couple of towns east who paints the phone numbers on the signs. WhenI get out there, I take the painted signs down, but not with any animosity toward the person who painted them. Painting is not my preferred method (I like to rip them down completely), but at least the painter is doing something.
The guys in your AO may have had to resort to stickering to attract enough sharks to compete with the volume of sign spammers. See, if there aren't enough sharks, they can't keep up with the volume of spam signs.
Sounds like the case, if your pet sign has been there for a couple of weeks.
>They're primitive, and they work against us.
A matter of opinion. If they really worked agains "us" many areas in Colorado would be in a lot worse shape than they are.
>Let's just make the spam disappear as it appears. Let's not draw attention to "sharkers."
One more time: That can only happen if there are enough sharks to keep up with the spammers. If stickers are what's needed to make that happen, then stickers are good, notwithstanding the fact that I don't use them myself.
>Let's not make this a Big Deal.
'"I will go to war with CAUSS" sounds like you're making it a big deal. If you dislike the signs, why do you have such a big problem with something that recruits other people to help you get rid of them?
>Sharkers happen. Recruiting is unnecessary.
Denver and others in Colorado would beg to differ. They had a real problem out there, and the stickers helped them a lot.
> Stop trying to be an "activist."
You state this like "activist" is some kind of a dirty word. Why? Not to jump ugly with anyone who rips down signs, but I'm curious about the excessive sensitivity.
