I went out on "sign patrol" last night. While taking down coroplast signs, I observed two people on the opposite side of the street stapling flyers to telephone poles. They went their way, and I went mine.
Reaching the end of the road twenty minutes later, I made a U-turn, and began the second phase of my cleanup - taking down the flyers that were just put up!

Way to GO!! This has happened to me a few times. It's a nice feeling to know for sure that the spam had a lifespan of only a few minutes.
A few years ago, I was removing signs during the day and realized the spammer was on the diagonally opposite corner putting up another sign. I immediately turned around and sat in my car a few hundred feet away. As I watched from a distance, the spammer noticed the signs missing and started looking around to see if they were on the ground and trying to figure out what had just happened. He sat in his car in a gas station parking area for about 15 minutes, probably to see if anyone would show. Since I knew he hadn't seen me remove the signs, I pulled into the gas station to get a soda and jot down a complete description of the spammer, and his vehicle. I later reported all the details to code enforcement but they never followed through, unfortunately.
