Quote:Well, I was going to come here and complain a bit......"if" these people who insist on what seems to me to be "light trespass" with no concern of their neighbor, NEED to understand, in some way, that what they are doing IS destructive, intrusive, and objectionable by a growing minority. I understand that we all have the right to light up our property any way we see fit, but where does that cross the line? ...and how does one in the face of complete ignorance and/or blatant disregard, go about turning the tide, without making these individuals understand that excessive light is so "bad" on many levels, (light pollution, utility costs, waste of resources) without putting a negative spin on the situation?...post edited for content...Charles
