Spam Signs Decorate Town

Seriously, don't visit their site

Anyone else notice these signs pop up around town recently? Can anyone really get away with this kind of sign spam in our fair city? Not that anyone's going to enforce anything other than to just remove the offending blight but I presume orgs like Pierce Transit probably don't enjoy their way markers used as such. Maybe the website is the best thing to hit the web since the dancing baby so correct me if I'm wrong. The website comes from a family of sites grouped together from a conglomerate based in Vancouver, BC who I certainly won't link to here and give them anymore validity or hit counts. Not exactly a local trying to eek out a living. For my money I'd definitely visit 2good2toss.com.

Also reminds me of some spam I've seen crop up along Schuster just leaving Old Town. Especially around our local elections (though still now) there is a sign staked into the ground that looks like a political sign advertising... political signs. Just because it looks like one doesn't mean it's covered under any freedom of political speeches laws. Sigh, just not a fan at all of this kind of brazen work while it seems the consequences are seldom if ever enforced to actually stop it.

Listen folks, we don't have to be a dumping ground for this kind of stuff. Maybe a spam sign impromptu community clean-up up is in order...

Those are the signs Robert Hill took from the sign vigilante at the Tacoma City Coucil!

We can always use signs for bsim props. Not that I'm going to go around taking them down or anything, I'm just saying if any happen to fall on the ground and you happen to pick them up...

Seems like illegal signage is fair game (so to speak) for anyone. I wouldn't put anyone behind bars for helping to clean up Tacoma by removing those. Should that go for other signs in town too I wonder?

About

Although I have another home on the web I thought it might be nice to lead by example a bit and put this blog system up to the test myself.

So far, so good... Funny how I build web tools for other people that are far better than the one's I have setup over on KFnet.
