My problem is thread discussions like this give people "ideas" who wouldnt otherwise consider it. Best thing to do is let this thread die architectural theft is a real problem.

Well, I don't think anyone is advocating architectural theft. We were all pretty clear with the OP that requesting permission from an owner was necessary, even on unoccupied/boarded up houses.

however, if a lawful owner of a home wants to sell off the architectural items it contains, that's totally their right. I may not think highly of them, or ever offer to buy the now-gutted-of-character result. But, still - their right.

I'm pretty sure the people breaking into abandoned buildings (a crime in and of itself) and stealing fixtures, paneling, copper, etc.. are not reading a forum to get ideas. But in case they are:

Burglary is a CRIME!! Breaking into a building is a crime!! Trespass (in case the door was open) is a CRIME!!
