Well, maybe not a "solution," but another arrow in the quiver:
"Just outside his sealed bedroom window, beyond the chain-link fence that
surrounds his next-door neighbor's yard, sit the reasons David Adams says he

If this site gives folks a place to vent, maybe they won't come here?

Been there, done that. They would come out and talk to the people but
also told me there was nothing they could do. Told me to call animal
control to see if the dogs were being abused.
I also had a damn rooster next door that would start crowing at 6am on
the dot until 7am, the time I had to get up for work.
Needless to say I got little sleep when I lived in that house.
Thank god it was a rental!
So, you lived in an agricultural zone, and complained about this rooster...
Next you'll move to a city, and complain about the traffic. Or maybe next to

I mean that you just complained about the rooster HERE - HERE - HERE.
Even if you didn't complain about it to the owner (or authorities), still, come
on! There has been for awhile increasing numbers of people moving to rural
environments who aren't used to it, then complain about rural realities like
roosters and fertilizer and pesticide smells, and road use by agricultural
Nice try. Always paint yourself into a corner?
You wrote: So, you lived in an agricultural zone, and complained about

in fact I clearly wrote that I called LE on the dogs.
Now, piss off.
Who's squirming out of a corner here?
The *point* is, it's silly to compln - officially or otherwise - about things
like roosters when you've moved to a rural area.
It's no surprise you're reacting like this, frankly. Always the *other* guy's
But that sort of thing is common. People move next to a firing range and
complain about the noise and safety issues. People move next to a railroad
track and complain about the trains.
Many years ago, a group at the end of an LAX runway complained about the
increased traffic, especially at night. They got vocal. Then they got
demonstrative. Then they went to the county board and state legislature.
But they forgot something.
LAX is an autonomous state agency. LAX condemned all the homes in the
subdivision under imminent domain, bulldozed the houses, and extended the
runway. Plus they announced the same thing would happen to any other
wisenheimers who dared mess with them.
Here are 2 methods I don't recommend:
One real estate agent (in CA I think) got mad at another and ran an ad on
Craigslist. It gave an address and said they were remodelling the house and
needed to gut it. Come by and remove anything you want, but don't destroy
It was the address of an empty house the other realtor owned. Many showed up and
picked the house empty.
Another in Miami posted an ad pretending to be a hooker. He included the phone
number of a competing agent.
