Jack, I just read your post. I have to agree with you about the signs not being the best looking things in the world. I really don’t care for them myself. But, I don’t see how you could have a problem with them, and take it upon yourself to take them down, but not care about any other type of sign? Do you vote? Would political signs not bother you? They are shoving their message down your throat. And most of the time end up as trash in someones yard. I guess what I am saying is that it seems hypocritical of you to decide what signs are acceptable and which are not. So the issue you have is with the content not context? All of the peolple that put up signs are doing business the same way. Why are just the REIs “sleazeballs”? I don’t like any of them but I don’t think you should single out one group. Be a stand up guy and fight for what you believe in, but don’t fall short, and don’t just pick on the little guy (that’s makes you a bully). Make some calls to the builders and politicians too! To me all of the sign look the same, and I don’t feel they make me look badly at all, but the do make any area look bad, regardless of what’s printed upon them.
