As soon as I saw this I knew that some Neil from the young ones dogooder had mounted the pony for a quixotic quest.
Obviously the rampant bandpostering had just been getting out of hand. They probably thought ‘how will my emo band get some publicity if someone else keeps putting posters over MY posters? – We can all share and win if we just follow some basic rules – which I will make up because i am a dogooder, and a prefect at high school’.
Of course walking on this earth as long as I have, i knew that this was doomed to failure. I took a photo, waiting for the inevitable response from the dogooders competitor.
A textbook case of why industry self regulation fails. Not all of the dogooders competitors want to play by the rules – what rules they say. Its not like they follow any of the other rules, enshrined in legislations, such as not defacing private property with their unwanted visual pollution.
i am particularly amused that the ‘rules’ were targeted for over postering so specifically.
