Re: “Billboard Boycott?

SAY WHAT? SO U WOULD RATHER HAVE WALMART SIGNS EVERYWHERE INSTEAD OF LOCAL BIZ? BECAUSE THATS EXACTLY WHO WILL TAKE THE SIGNS OVER AFTER YOU MAKE THE LOCAL BUSINESSES SUFFER. I completely understand and agree that this situation is absurd and has gone round and round far too long. I wish billboards weren't located along the Bay. I just feel that 'voting for the ugliest sign' OR BOYCOTTING LOCAL BUSINESSES is negative and only brings down local companies RATHER THAN focusing the attention on the real root of the problem -->The sleazy, loop hole finding corporation in New York that constructs/owns the majority of the signs!!! <-- Maybe it would be more productive to provide us with information on who we can contact locally, a name and an address in New York to bombard with letters, or a link to an online petition to sign.... I don't know??? Anything except single out a local company billboard. I know that your overall intentions are good; I just don't see how this vote or boycott contributes to the good of the cause. The folks that are passionate enough about this situation should be directed to put all of their energy and opinions towards the CBS company in New York. In my opinion, trying to alienate/boycott a local business (to do what? deter them from advertising there?) is not at all beneficial because there is another business (perhaps WALMART - lol) that is waiting in the wings to advertise in that spot next. The negativity of this suggestion to boycott is the probably not the best way to be thinking..or approaching this situation.

Re: “NCJ's Ugliest Billboard Contest

I completely understand and agree that this situation is absurd and has gone round and round far too long. I wish billboards weren't located along the Bay. I just feel that 'voting for the ugliest sign' provided an unnecessary opportunity for people to bring down local companies, artists and/or even the guy that hangs the ads (yea when I saw that one comment on the ncj website about the painter guy it shocked me) RATHER THAN focusing the attention on the root of the problem -->The sleazy, loop hole finding corporation in New York that constructs/owns the majority of the signs!!! <-- Maybe it would be more productive to provide us with information on who we can contact locally, a name and an address in New York to bombard with letters, or a link to an online petition to sign.... I don't know??? Anything except single out a local company billboard. I know that your overall intentions are good; I just don't see how this vote contributes to the good of the cause.

I appreciate that you guys care and have informed us of these issues. I also love the playfulness of the NCJ... I guess in this case I am bummed because the negativity of this vote was a bit of a turn off.

Re: “NCJ's Ugliest Billboard Contest

I am really confused. What are you hoping to accomplish by picking the business that has the ugliest billboard? Perhaps I am missing something, but the only thing I see happening here is the creation of a negative forum for bashing our local businesses? With that said, I wish there weren't any billboards on the 101 safety corridor at all. Just seems to me that the "vote" should simply be about whether or not you support the billboards or want them taken down. Spread love not hate. Just saying....
