An Update on Neighborhood Signs and Banners

The Affordable Commerce SEO investigative team have not seen any signs and banners displayed from the porch of our neighbor in quite some time. It is unclear what the reason for this absence happens to be. On the surface it appears that our neighbor has caved into the directive issued by the home owners’ association that he cease his display of signs from his front porch going forward. Certainly the home owners’ association has the authority to issue fines for any further infraction on the point of our neighbor. However, I suspect there is a deeper reason for his lack of signs recently.


The reason why I think there is a deeper undercurrent to our neighbor’s lack of signs is based upon his prior history of sign display. He clearly displayed a vibrant history of sign display. This vibrant history demonstrated a very strong desire (one might say compulsion) to display signs from his porch. On the other hand this display of signs seemed to be contingent on the health of his neighbor name Susan who lives in the house across the street from his house. The fact that her treatment had ended might have been the catalyst he needed to put an end to his sign display.

So where does that leave us? The question that remains is whether our neighbor will ever display a sign from his porch again. If our neighbor displayed signs out of compulsion then there is a high degree of certainty that he will display another sign in the future. At some point his compulsion to display signs will override his fear of being fined by the home owners’ association. However, if his prior sign display behavior was motivated solely by his neighbor’s illness then there seems to be less of a chance that we shall ever see a sign displayed from his porch again. Time will tell I suppose.
