     What makes you think I can get away with something "reasonable"?

     What makes you think the yuppie neighbors would agree with my idea of "reasonable"?

     Intentionally pissing off all the neighbors might be something I can manage to do
     under the color of law. It doesn't necessarily mean that it's a bright thing to do
     or something that someone with an actual law license would recommend.
     The great beauty of technology is the fact that I can use it to route around annoying people.

     Yeah, "Piss off all your neighbors because the law allows" you is great advice.
