Gee folks, can't we all just get along :^)
Human nature being what it is, not always. There's barking dogs, neighbor cats spraying your door and killing birds at your feeder, neighbors who can't do anything outside without some sort of noisy engine (but of course my air compressor isn't that noisy :^), neighbrs who like checking tuning on their 2 stroke dirt bikes by riding up and down the street, neighbors who can't do anything outside at night without half a dozen mercury-vapor lamps lighting up 5 yards, the Corvair owners with 4 cars in the yard, the ones with the big moldy RV, the ones who think cleaning their yard means blowing the grass and leaves into the street, etc.
I've seen neighbors paint huge unhappy faces on the side of their house after a neighbor's new addition took away their view, portions of whole neighborhoods almost riot after the local animal shelter gave a live trap to someone who complained about cats in his yard, and he actually used it for several months. I recall articles in the LA Times about a lady that cashed out and moved to a rural town, and instantly it was lady vs the town. When she gave up and posted a moving sale in the local paper lots of friendly neighbors showed up to help out :^) Ranchers in Montana needed to establish zoning to keep the property from being subdivided for 5 acre McRanches.
One prospective businessman in our neighborhood actuaully received death threats when he proposed opening an amusement park with go karts in some adjacent property with commercial zoning. It's incidents like that that don't allow me to lsiten very long to anyone talking about how 'civilized' we are.
