would these been the same little busy bodies who complain about the 
environment and the cost of utilities and gas while at the same time 
fighting to not allow their neighboors to install alternative energy 
products on their property? Ie: the guy who had to disable his wind 
generator because it made a slight wooshing sound? the same ones who call 
thew cops because your kids are laughing too loud at 3 in the afternoon?

I agree with you sign it willingly, you deal with it, but there needs to be 
a limit to what can and can not be put into such contracts. they should not 
be able to strip you of all your human rights and control every aspect of 
your life via binding contract!!!! you know what thats called????

Same idea as the folks who move in next to an airport - then complain
about noise!  Duh!

Reminds me of those sports stars who sign multi-million dollar
contracts seeing the direct benefit to them, then try to weasel out of
it later once they have the dough.

I see it more as having the potential to make amateurs look foolish,
as well as whiners and crybabies. That we'd willingly sign a document
clearly stating what is off limits, then play the victim and cry foul.
We do see a lot of this type of nonsense in today's world where no one
apparently is responsible for the choices they make, it's just sad to
see the group that supposedly looks out for amateur radio considering
the same nonsense. Then again - it is a 'brave, new-age world' and we
have the equivalent in the ARRL. We really shouldn't be surprised.
That it's taking place in Texas and Oklahoma instead of somewhere like
San Francisco, Seattle, or New England is somewhat amazing, though.

As for those old ladies, Jim - more power to them for sticking up for
what's right and expecting others to live up to their end of the
bargain. As Bruce, Larry, and others have said - no one is twisting
anyone's arm to move there. (o:
