How is that not mail fraud anyway? You really wanna prank someone get their e-mail and sign them up for updates for inappropriate websites. It's a nuisance but nobody ends up with stacks of unwanted magazines in a landfill.

/And if you let your dog poop on a neighbor's lawn, you deserve to be signed up for inappropriate German websites

Someone did this to my son about a year ago.  Had like 20 different magazines, book clubs, religious newsletters and a slew of other mail coming in every day.  Never did find out who was doing it.  Wouldn't have been so bad if they were anything good, but they were all woman's magazines and romance novels.

Walk door to door until you find someone that wants a subscription to vibe...Never mind, you would have hepatitis as soon as you found a taker that passed the pen back.

Seriously. The least they could've done was signed him up for some high-quality scat porn.

The pron industry doesn't need vagrants to pedal their wares for them.  That tactic is for shiat paper like the Mother Earth Magazine. or "O".

That's a shame. I really needed 41 subscriptions to Vibe. 40 is useless to me!

Remember the Spam King? Well, one day he was bragging about how his spam business made him so much money he could afford a huge new house in Texas somewhere. The nerds over at Slashdot found out which house it was and fell upon him with a wrathful vengeance. At the height of the bombardment he was getting three postal service trucks of mail a day. He had no idea why people would do that to him.

I did this 20 years ago to my dominos manager.  I took the interest card out of the Pizza Today magazine and sent every product info request in the magazine to his apartment.  He would get 5 or six packets of crap a day.

He got me back by calling sally struthers and asking for info on adopting an african kid.  I thought this was hillarious and started reading it, and decided I could afford to do that.  I still to this day pay for an african kid.  seems like he could get a job by now.

Anyhoo.... HOW IN THE HECK IS THIS STALKING?  this is not stalking.  To call this stalking is an insult to stalking victims.

FTFA:

Police tracked down the culprit using high-tech crime scene analysis techniques: they matched her handwriting on a letter to the homeowners association to that found on the subscription cards. HOAs, man. HOAs.

It's an HOA being HOA-y.

Okay, someone clarify for me. We've got neighbor 1 who let her dog poop in the yard of neighbor 2, and we've got neighbor 2 who turned neighbor 1 in to the HOA. So did neighbor 2 also prank/stalk neighbor 1 by sending her the subscriptions, or did neighbor 1 prank/stalk neighbor 2 for turning her in?

I was told there would be no math.

How does an HOA even have any legal authority?  They can write all the 'fines' they want, but there's really nothing legally binding about them.  So turning an individual over to the HOA for a minor offense is something akin to "I'm going to tell my mommy on you".  If they try to collect,  you just tell them to fark the hell off.

No matter how many times I see that scene, I still crack up. Particularly when he ditches the bat and just starts punching, and then when he breaks free and goes back for more. The music makes it doubly hilarious. Definitely one of the finest comedy scenes in history.

I'm guessing the HOA went to the authorities with their CSI neato detective equipment and discovered who with the twenty seven eight-by-ten colour glossy photographs with circles and arrows.

I remember a previous HOA thread where someone was outside an HOA, but the HOA reported them for county/city code violations.

Fill the scrips and find an enterprising youngster to sell them around the dorm for a share of profit.

Oh, wait, I read "prescriptions for Valium". Eh

Hmmm, let's see.  Commit mail fraud for a neighbor's pet pooping on your lawn, an action which, while annoying, is in fact biodegradable.  That about sums up the logic of someone who would enjoy being in an HOA.  Plus, if you care THAT MUCH about your lawn, you deserve this sort of scorn.

Yup.  Also in the way the other two hold him back.  Not in an angry way but in a "dude, we understand but ya gotta just...just gotta stop...it's OK man, s'ok..."

How the hell are the two of you reading this article and finding fault with the home owner's association?  Thaty had NOTHING to do with what happened!  One irresponsible person (who happens to live in a HOA) failed to be a responsible pet owner.  Another person, who just happens to live in the same HOA, reacts poorly and does something immature.  And both of you and the author of the article want to blame the HOA.  Are you nuts?  The only thing the HOA apparently did was supply police with evidence when they were investigating a crime.

There are plenty of cases of HOA's doing stupid/cruel/borderline illegal things.  But that isn't what happened here.
