Hoboken QotD – Street Trash

5/8/2008:

Continuing the Hoboken411 “Question of the Day” series…

(this post was composed over a week ago, and was going to publish it tomorrow, but with all the chatter about Mario’s Pizza, decided to bump it today)

Garbage Everywhere!

A Hoboken411 reader suggested this as a QotD topic last week:

“With all the trash in town let’s start a campaign where everyone will promise to pick up trash off the street and put it in the garbage, even if it is one piece of paper or cup.”

Good idea!

Would anyone be willing to collectively come together as a community and vow to pick up and dispose of at least one mis-placed piece of trash per day?

(And I don’t mean cleaning up what should be a business-owner’s responsibility – instead, just snap photos and email them in…)

There’s a sign on the cage that clearly states, in all caps, “Do Not Feed Troll”.

And what did all you guys do? You threw him a luow.

Personally, I don’t have an issue with all caps. But if the rationale for the ban all all caps is for attempting to reduce annoying, non-contributive, immature comments, then there’s a lot more that happens here with lower caps than all caps.

But it makes sense that in a thread about people throwing trash everywhere that people would want to clean up the comment section a bit. Unfortunately, just as there are people who litter on the streets, there are also people who litter in the comment section.

Kal-el, you have been asked politely to lay off the caps lock for a while now. Give it a rest.

It’s OK, you’re new to the internets. You may be familiar with how these internets work, it’s not a big truck, it’s a series of tubes. As such, did you know that caps are bigger letters and can sometimes clog these tubes and make your internets slower?

You don’t want slower internets do you?

Here’s a senator explaining it in language you may better understand:

Keep telling yourself that. I think the “newbies” that can afford to buy here and ultimately move to a “better” community with a functional government and school system are the winners. But if it makes you feel better to think you are “winning”, then more power to you. I personally would prefer to be personally successful and not “get ahead” by leeching off of the success of others.
