This is the best I could come up with. There are more dramatic photos I am sure, but maybe you can get the idea.





This isn't the main drag, but it gives you an idea what I am talking about better.

I must say, this place is getting pretty hostile. I mean, I raise a question about overhead power lines in a town and it is like I am some devil for saying such a thing. Goodness!

The norm in an Internet forum is that introducing a topic means you are inviting discussion and debate of that topic. When you then announce you don't care what views other people have on the subject, don't care what information other people have to share on the subject, and generally don't think that anyone who disagrees with you could possibly know anything of value, it is YOU, not those other people, who are violating standard Internet norms.

I didn't say that about your first post. It was the second post that was a repeat. Your opinion was already stated.

The more I look at this picture, the more I feel it shows the deal there in Blawnox. Massive power lines on both sides of the street. Super thick on one side and giant polls with lines all over the place on the other.

If this was your blog, you would be entitled to decide whether or not comments from other people were worth posting (of course people would be free to decide whether your comment policy affected their desire to frequent your blog). But this is a general forum, and all of us are guests here, even in threads which you start, and therefore you are not entitled to decide whether another poster's comments are contributing to a discussion.

I'd also suggest you should be careful with the notion that if other people here find a poster to be unduly repetitive, that means everyone can start dismissing their contributions. You might not like how that plays out in practice. You might even end up accusing people of being "hostile" if they followed that notion.

Pot, kettle, black is traded on the NYSE?

BTW (By the way), I agree with you on above-ground powerlines. They're uglifying any number of East End areas as we speak. But for you to call other people hostile...well, pkb.

I know it's subjective, but I don't know how anyone can argue that power lines look better than no power lines. Now, whether it's worth the cost and effort of getting rid of them is an interesting discussion . . .
