One of the scam/spam Credit Repair Services has taken to nailing their 18x24 coroplast signs up high on the corner telephone poles in the North Dallas, North Carrollton, Plano and areas of far North Dallas County.
Haven't seen anything like this in some time. Color them gone.

We removed about eight of ten this afternoon, even had to go back and take the Sharky Stick out of moth balls.

Any idea why the high-on-utility-poles mode of spamming has been on the wane? Dare I hope it is because of us?

Strictly speculation on my part, but it would be my guess that the time and visability factor on the part of the spammers is the primary reason. It takes about three times as long to get out of a vehicle, get into the back of a truck, stand on the bed rails and nail a sign up far as reach will allow, as it does to stake.
Staking is a simple matter of opening the door hitting the stake a couple of good licks with an engineer's or heavy weight carpenter's hammer and be gone. Using "H" wire frames takes even less, but it's more expensive.
With public awareness and all the attention that's be drawn to and put out by the code enforcment across the county, the spammers are well known targets.
It's a well know fact that the signs nailed on the phone poles are harder to get down and have more visibility, but to to do this feat, it takes two well coordinated people working together with precise timing.
Signs on the utility poles began disappearing at a rapid rate, once the sharky stick idea was passed on to us at the public awareness event by "Sharky" back in January of 2000. When area sharks got on to the idea of how easy it is to knock the signs down in 1/2 the time it took to put them up, it became more of a challenge. Thus the pole litter began to disappear because we were knocking them down before the ink had time to dry.
