My neighbor was scammed by driveway spraying scammers

You don't get out a lot, do you? Lots and lots of rapes, murders, burglaries, and other things committed by people posing as someone they're not. Facts, not mindless paranoia. If you can't read the newspapers, there's local TV news each evening at around six. Don't own a TV? Well, I guess you are going to have to splurge $10 on a cheap AM radio. They have news on the hour every hour.

Never ever could bullshit its way out of a wet paper bag.

Yes, but its just not feasible to never ever let anyone anywhere near your house just in case its one of those. And fuck all of those you mention above are spraying scammers or even just door to door sales fools anyway. Too easy to identify those.

Your claim that you should ensure that no one can get anywhere near your house is just completely mindless paranoia.

And those report fuck all spraying scammers doing anything more than con the stupid, stupid.

Have you ever NOT answered your door and then observe the solicitor twist the door knob?
I always answer my door in full force: by any means I was taught to kill with, though not so noticeable to my door knocker.

A number of towns around me started implementing laws that door to door salespeople had to register. You know those magazine salespeople? They are recruited in the inner cities, bussed to the suburbs and dropped off. Many of them have criminal backgrounds. Sounds like some paranoid story I'm making up. How much money are they making off these subscriptions to make this scheme worthwhile?? At any rate, they can be trouble, and a couple of years back one of them murdered an elderly lady when she let him in for a glass of water.
I don't think it's paranoia to have sales people ... or whomever ... register so they are on notice, the police know you're in the area.

You are so right. It don't happen in Las Vegas - all the time. They pass out flyers (strip) for me to have an erotic escort. Hell I'm local with no need.
The police know they are there and might even understand when I push the guy out of my space or on his ass when I walk the street.
Just like me answering the front door. The person ought to really know what he is up against. Don't get me wrong. I don't cut or shoot everyone knocking on the door.

Me neither, but I get one every once in a while. I have a nice looking round headed big nail on the backside of my front door. It's for hanging a holster. I talk with people now and then at the front door, and they have no idea I have a gun in my right hand. I also write down license plates. Just a hobby for us paranoid fools.
Don't know about where lots of folks live, but where Oren and I do, home invasion is a common thing. Occasionally ending someone's death. It is also common to be attacked in your garage with the door open. I have a loaded gun in four different areas. I also carry pepper spray almost all of the time. Violent crimes happen in big cities, rural, and small town America. Anyone who thinks not is a troll or just mentally not all there.
Glad I'm moving out of this hell hole soon. Taking a big load of furniture to Utah in the morning. Tools are going to take about two loads. Looking forward to life in a town of 935 people. Maybe I'll forget about all this, and start posting that everyone who carries a gun or thinks they can be assaulted or preyed upon are just paranoid fools.
Nah. Last year there was a homicide in that little town of 935.
I was a part time coroner's investigator for a while. As a newcomer and a part timer, all of my calls were "natural" deaths. But I was a part of the office that deals with the dark side of what one human does to another, and heard and saw a lot of things first hand. We had a word for people who walked around thinking everyone was paranoid, and that nothing could happen to THEM: prey.

Pity the real crims wont bother to register with the cops.
Just another terminally stupid system that only inconveniences those who arent the problem and does nothing about those who are.
If you're that paranoid, it makes a hell of a lot more sense to have decent secure security cameras so you can give the cops the footage when something undesirable happens.

The point is they are breaking the law if they knock on your door and the police will respond if they are reported.

Screw that, if they are knocking on my door selling shit, you think I care if they're inconvenienced?

I'm not paranoid. But thanks for playing.

No they arent if they have registered.

And you have no practical way of checking if they have registered with the cops or not.

The crims that matter arent, fool.

Corse you are.

Pathetic.

Yes, and people who have it can't wait to show it to you.
I wouldn't ask for it if they didn't, I'd say no thanks, then call after they left. Luckily we get very few door to door people, mostly Jehovah, and the occasional kid selling candy or cookies.

Just last week I had this new thing installed, it's called a phone. People use it to report suspicious activity.

Crims, is that a new word?

Another new word.

Indeed.

Hardly anyone bothers to do with every door to door monkey.

Even someone as stupid as you should be able to work out what its a contraction of in the context.

Like it or lump it.

Pathetic.
