    Calm down, Cap'n Drama...it was a question posed to determine the legality of said mailbox and turns out the residence isn't included in the Broadlands, end of discussion. Nobody is going to go balistic because a picture of their mailbox ended up on the internet. It's not like someone hid in a closet and took pictures of someone sleeping or went through their mail and posted personal information. Get a hold of yourself, for christ sake. And, if you personally don't care...why would you 'go over there and show them what is being said'? Ugh...

    brim capt drama here. When you have been a homebuilder you just can't imagine what people will do and the lengths they will go. 99% are fine it is that 1% that will drive you nuts. fun like this can turn into horror stories want me to start telling you all a few????? Like the person who took a picture of a home from the street and when the picture got out in public and one of the windows was blown up and you could see a couple lets say having a wonderful time. hmmmmm that picture taker lets say spent a lot of money explaining and explaining to a person with a black robe on and then started to pay and pay and guess to whom????
    Never know what that person in a black robe will order.

    capt drama stream-of-consciousness :)

    I doubt a grainy, low-res picture from a camera phone would yield any shocking imaged when blown up. Regardless, I didn't take the picture...I don't even live in the area anymore. Plus, I really doubt your story is real...sounds like urban legend. Anyhow, let it die...perhaps the admins can lock this thread or delete it.

    So what if you're brother is a lawyer...what's that have to do with the price of tea in China? I haven't broken any laws (that weren't driving laws) since I was a teenager and I certianly haven't broken any laws regarding you.

    My dad was an aluminum worker and my grandmother was a seamstress as long as we're sharing family backgrounds. And as far as emails go...I'm not posting my public email here, that's perposterous.

    As a new member of a forum/community, being cocky and acting like you know everything isn't a good way to win popularity contests (I should know about not winning popularity contests).

    Lee, You're full of it.

    Taking a picture in public is not a violation of any law, period. If a couple was canoodling in the window that is considered to be in public!

    Obvious case in point. If it was illegal there would be no Paparazzi. With your logic the HOA would never be able to take a picture of a house in violation or no one would be able to take a picture of an accident for insurance.

    And as far as so and so I know being a whosawhatis. Blah blah blah. Have him sue me for having a first ammendment right.

    OK, this is it, no more from me on this except for.

    you are making my point how some homeowners are just wacked out and wacky to prove their point. So go ahead and make fun of your neighbors especially the ones that have no clue for the moment you are doing it. yep That is neighborly. Big difference in letting some know what you think in private then here.

    Hey give me your address and real name and I will go take a picture of your home and post here lets start there instead of people that may be unaware you are making fun of them and posting on a public forum. Personally this forum should require real names and address to post here and then see who spouts off. Some with the biggest mouths here seem to hide behind nicknames and no email addresses etc. Lets see who you really are. Then after you had your fun at someone elses expense you go please please mr administrator take this off before I get found out and people start making fun of me. I will mr brim about making new friends here the only ones I have lashed back out well you know who you are right baby brim. Some have emailed me privately thanking me for my advice. So I am not too worried about being friends with the very few blowhards here that usually have nothing constructive to say.

    Now brim maybe you will get your wish and have this thread closed after my reply.

    Have fun

    LEE!!!!! posting a pic of a mailbox or mentioning a blonde on a deck is NOT making fun of or picking on your neighbors!

    IMHO, you are the one acting whacky!

    LET IT GO!!!!!

    thanks brim now from that sign out front that may be too blurry in that picture yet one can enhance to read, and if that is your real home, can I post your name and address here???? At least I give you the option without revealing your privacy.

    Provided you could read it, and you contacted the builder (who's sign that is), somehow managed to figure out which house they'd built and get them to give you any personal details on the buyer...no, you wouldn't have my permission. What's it matter? And where did this personal information kick come from? I haven't posted anyones personal information here...why are you so eager to post mine? Just let it go...jeez.

    Brim seriously it is a bigger topic then this when you post someones home legally or not there may be a wealth of in formation to be gotten from that.

    My point being there is a bigger issue of privacy at stake here whether in good fun or not.

    From that sign believe me I can get the address of that home then go to the tax rolls find out the current owner all previous owners what they paid for the home and that is just the beginning all its all public record, no laws broken. Give this to my PI friend and your whole life can be exposed.

    Thats why it is dangerous to post peoples pictures of their homes.

    Of course brim I am not going to check up on you not going to call the number or do a search on the name so don't worry just making a point how dangerous just a little tid bit can be if the persons wants privacy.

    Can we have a truce here?????

    Thanks

    This has got to be the most bizzare topic thread I've yet experienced in these forums.

    So what? You can actually drive by it and get a lot more information if you so desire? Would you prefer the whole world be blind? Anyone with working eyes can see that house...there is a limit to what you can keep private. Yes, I know about the property tax sites and investigators blah blahblahbalh...it's all public record. What would one do with that information tho, sign someone up for a bunch of porn magazines and order pizzas sent to their address? And how many people out there are so hopped up that they'd go after someone with a football helmet mailbox?

    It's not like it would take Columbo to figure it out: get phone number of builder from sign, call builder and try to desribe house and social-engineer the address and/or buyer, go to county/state tax assessment page, plug in address, get owners names, and so on and so on...like you said, public record, except the part about getting information from the builder...I'm sure there are some 'obtaining information under false pretense' laws about that, but I'm not a lawyer.


    Well I appreciate that. Also, I don't think anyone with a mailbox like that would shun the extra attention he's getting because of it...that seems to be the point of putting something like that in front of your house, to get people to look in the first place.

    That said, I'm done with this topic.
