Have all identity thieves (after a fair trial) have their identities nulled out.  No identity at all.  Then have the nulls dropped off at point nemo.

Problem solved.

Use them for Covid experiments. Give something back to people they've harmed.

Is there some reference I'm missing? Or is the joke that the headline sounds like a reference but actually isn't? Meh.

The condos in Florida. They collapsed. Bye bye.

As shiatty as these people are, and they are shiatty, they're gonna do way more jail time than any of the "managers" who kept passing the buck around until it was too late.

 A bit less than 20 years ago I spent months working off a list from the Secret Service, looking for scumbag ID thieves using the identities of 9/11 victims.  My job was to find things in our system that looked suspicious then hand them over to Legal to have fun with.  I never knew the exact number that we caught but I know a few dozen went to prison for identity theft and I was proud to have helped put them there.

Ironically I was a victim of ID theft a couple years ago.  Unlike the 9/11 victims I wasn't dead.

Wasn't there a story about the HOA members, as in the tenants, voting down a lot of the repairs?

And yes, yes there was.  https://www.usatoday.com/story/​news/20​21/07/10/surfside-condo-building-colla​pse-associations-fights-plans/78404680​02/

The managers you speak of can't do shiat if their proposals get voted down.

Sounds like you've been living under a collapsed building.

It's a Flintstones reference. "Rubble-strewn" was the giveaway. Glad I could help. My work here is done.

Is this the end of the housing bubble? I hear housing is coming down...

It's an old Texas saying.
"Collapse like a house of pancakes."

Yeah, that doesn't make sense to me, either.

Have laws passed so that managers are responsible.

Problem solved.

Not quite yet.  Buy into likely to collapse structures and wait for a government bailout.  When the gov takes over, you know it will collapse.  Soon.

I like some of the ideas listed. The Covid testers sounds intriguing.

Being told you need to essentially rebuy your condo is kind of a sticker shock.

Doing the expensive right thing is going to be unpopular and a hard sell.

Condo Association meetings are in Dante's Inferno as one of the lower rings of hell.

It's a condo so the managers are the owners. I wonder how many died also consistently voted down paying for repairs

No thank you Dr. Mengele.
