I'd also like to post a list of street spammers plus their contact info on my site (badads.org) so that readers can write complaint letters. I've already done one weblog update about street spam (including a link to CAUSS), but didn't include spammers' contact info as I usually do. Is anyone keeping a database?

You run the badads website?
Dang, now I feel like I'm in the presence of greatness - I've admired that site for a long time. (I own an advertising agency among other things, so visiting your site is a professional activity along with being a WHOLE lot of fun - reveling in the agony of others, and all that.)
See my other reply, send me your contact information, and we'll have some fun exposing the sign spammers to the ridicule they so richly deserve.

Just to clarify a statement in my previous post: Although I own an advertising agency, I'm absolutely opposed to the proliferation of invasive advertising in inappropriate places and intrusive manners, as is badads.org.
When I mentioned "reveling in the agony of others" it referred to deriving satisfaction at seeing the "advertise all the time, everywhere, to everyone" people get their public comeuppance.

>Is anyone keeping a database?
I'm keeping a database of the signs I've removed in Minnesota. (Well, it's actually an Excel spreadsheet.) I don't know how practical it would be to create a national database of street spam. It wouldn't be terribly difficult, and I could probably put one on my web server, but the problem is that the domains I have registered both have my home address in them. I'd rather not incite the spammers to do something stupid when my home is involved.
If you want a copy of this database, let me know via private message.
