Angry LP back garden

Post by astrotones »

Hey All,

Just gone outside into my Garden too see if the clouds had shifted and WHAM 237865 watts of light straight into my eye's from the new neighbours next door but one. The light is at an angle that it shines directly into my face from any point in my Garden.

Can i ask them to do something about it No chance there new here and with it they have the charm of a rotten fish on a hot summers day!

So what can be done? Any ideas would be greatly recived because there's no way i can even attempt to look through my scope without the danger of blinding myself.

Extremly ****ed off.

Hi screwdriver,

I haven't touched either of the above posts . The asterisks were either put there by Astrotones or Phil themselves or the "automatic censor" was employed. In either case I was just asking if it was necessary. It is a small point which is why I tried to make a joke about it. I was in two minds about whether to say anything as it would draw attention to a small point and perhaps actually you are right, I should'nt have made comment but when you have several posts together with words blotted out it begins to look bit intrusive. I don't mind the odd asterisk or strong word, we all want to express ourselves by whatever means available, but it should be borne in mind that this is a forum for all ages.
Next we will be getting a list of words we can use on this forum
Not a list of words that you can use but there is a list of words you can't use. They will be censored automatically without any interference from a moderator. (Your post was untouched by me) There are practical reasons as well. Some words are not allowed by some people's servers therefore they will have problems reading a message that contains these words.

Excellent idea! :D

My neighbors light might get reflected into their bedroom window next time they leave it on all night again too! :twisted:

Oh dear! Stella.

I guess the Mods will have to ban you permanently for publishing that list here :shock:

How did you manage to avoid the censor?

Anyway, on behalf of Kermit the ****, I protest :lol:

Mind if I pass those on for psychological analysis Stella?!

I also find that my email spam filters do their best to deny me seeing any emails from anyone using Virgin as their ISP!

Don't blame the messenger:
The list comes from Space.com forum

Lights

Post by Kaustav »

astrotones,
I have the same problem. I tried to politely ask the neighbours to reposition their sensors but they told me to go out more and get a life, so I bought a cheap narrow beam torch and I shine it directly at the sensor. It thinks it's day time and never comes on. It started ******* my neighbours off as they like hanging out in their garden a lot and eventually they re-positioned their sensor without me having to utter another word about it to them. Now-a-days their light still does come on when I go in to my garden but only if I walk right up to the egde of my garden fence which is obviously not a problem as I'm plonked smack in the middle of the garden out of sensor range. I used to use a laser pen to same effect but I've found the laser over heats within a short space of time and turns itself off,plus the tiny cells aren't rechargable, unlike my cheap little torch into which I put 2 x rechargable AAA's. I now use a wind up torch actually. Two minutes of winding gets me eighty minutes of light and eighty mins of respite from ten gazillion watt security light. A little stray light from the torch is a small price to pay.
