Very nice. I applaud that man's effort in taking that to battle, I would be po'd as hell if that happened to me lol. I'm curious to see how this ends.

I would probably be upset too, but there are always two sides to a story. This guy might have been purposely trying to bait the boot man. Who knows.

ps- someone should tell this guy, most HOA's have votes on these kinds of things.

As a known hater of HOAs, you KNOW I was entertained by this article.

That was a looooong read, but funny. I agree it's BS, but, as jsarno mentioned, the author glossed over whether he voted for or against (or not at all) the parking initiative.

I hate HOA's as well but it was nice to have one when one of my neighbors tired to put a 10' pool in front of his townhouse this summer. For two days it looked like a Water Park outside my house, with every kind in the hood coming over.

What is it with people putting pools in their front yards? I've noticed people doing that a lot lately around here. A small kiddie pool is one thing, but they're putting those larger ones which require a small filter system. I call them the poor man's above ground pool. Those big blue blobs look so redneck sitting smack dab in the middle of the yard.

LB you got it that was that exact type. go to Toys R Us they have every imangable size possible. I don't think they are that bad if you have a large yard and stick it in the back but the front yard of your Townhouse, come on!

Sweeet. I hate HOA's. And what is it with Security Guard/Parking Nazi being the new official title of small dicked moron's everywhere? I've never met anyone "normal" who does that job.

Am I the only person that feels like when you own the property that you have a right to do whatever you want to with it? While I might not be putting twenty cars in my yard and above ground pools everywhere, I still feel like it's total bullshit that someone else can tell me what to do with my own property who is not an actual government official referencing actual laws.

Now if people are running through your yard because of it, I can see your gripe, but isn't it as easy as just not looking at it?

One of my neighbors has the worst paint color on their house imaginable according to my tastes, but what gives me the right to tell them what to do with it? I don't look up there, they shouldn't look down at my place. For those of you who are familiar with the HOA story I posted a while back about me and my HOA (that I never joined by the way) it's a small entity with a bunch of big wigs in the neighborhood who want to exercise power of the rest of it.

Just because they think something is in good or bad taste doesn't give them the right to enforce their opinion on YOUR property that you pay your hard-earned money for.

As an aside, let me also state that I don't think ALL HOAs are bad, just the majority of them. The ones that don't bother me are the ones who actually provide a service rather than trying to enforce rules on my property.

I hear you but when it comes time to sell your house and you the Beverly Hillbilleys living next door with all there crap everywhere, who do you think is going to buy your house?

Basically a decent HOA is a good thing, it helps hold the value of your neighborhood. Of course like everything else there is always the one percent of HOA's that suck and are annoying.
