We recently got 10 acres in a new development (it's actually in the Sam Houston Park - thick and wooded ) We plan to start building in Jan. Anyway, we have our own forum there too. Conversation came up about solicitors. The example was the dude that drives a pickup selling steak out of the back - I'm sure you've seen them. So folks wanted to put up a "No Soliciting" sign at the front of entrance (a futile gesture IMO). Anyway, I said: I'd only support "no solicitors" if we equally don't allow kids to sell school/scout/whatever junk. It's equally as annoying to me (yes, I am a parent). I don't understand why the guy trying to make a living can't work but the kid selling junk food for their school/troop is OK. Seems backwards to me... (backwards in the sense I need meat, I don't need a high calorie caramel cookie though!) Well, this really irked some folks. (My current HOA for example doesn't allow solicitors but makes an exception for scouts, which I find discriminatory based on age) So I'd like my friends at 3reef opinions on the subject and perhaps help me word my position more eloquently. Apparently people assume I am being hostile (I've noticed it here too, I guess I come across that way). I'm being labeled anti-kid, which I find ridiculous. I don't want to buy your kids cookies, I already have to buy my kids cookies, and my nephews, and my nieces, etc ad infinitum. What's your take?
