Cheers Zappomatic. It's not rude, or offensive, and I wouldn't even mind it being there......if it was any good!
AFAIC, grafitti would be reasonably welcome on a lot of buildings, IF ONLY IT WAS DECORATIVE/INTERESTING/etc. I just don't get tagging (esp. when the tags are unadorned and deviod of style)
A few yrs ago, we lived in house at the end of a terrace, and local kids would always spray their silly tags on it. I got very close to covering their daubs in white and then having a go myself, on the grounds that at least I could try and do something that was a bit nicer to look at/had maybe taken an iota of thought before doing (and I'm no artist, by a long way).
Frankly, I'd be embarassed if I was one of the people who'd done the graffiti on our flats. If the std of my work was so low, I'd take to spraying other people's tags rather than my own.
(In fact, any suggestions for amusing grafitti to spray alongside said inept daubs - general theme being to take the piss at the low quality of work - would be most welcomed. Of course, if anyone from our tenant's mgt gestapo is reading this, then please be assured there's no way I'd ever dream of besmirching the lovely brickwork ;0))
...if you press it, they will come.
