    like mortifyd is really taking this personally for some reason. While I am quite well acquainted with "nosy neighbors" I do not think the diarist was being unreasonable or wierd. As I stated above, attitudes about nudity vary widely. That's why there are nudist colonies/campgrounds/beaches. My take is that the diarist is looking for some affirmation that a 8-12 yr old naked in the front yard on a fairly daily basis isn't "normal". I would have to agree. Now if CPS has investigated and has figured that the kid is autistic or something and "no harm, no foul" - then diarist should mind their own bidness from now on when driving/biking/walking by. This discussion feels like it could easily veer into a meta war. sigh. This is my last comment on the subject.

    if a habitat is flooded, the improvement for target fishes increases by an infinite percentage...because a habitat suitability index that is even a tiny fraction of 1 is still infinitely higher than zero, which is the suitability of dry land to fishes.

      to enforce their idea of social rules on private property and then seek out reassurance from others.  It really rubs me the wrong way.

      I don't come from nudists, I don't leave my room without being fully dressed.  But this is the second diary by this individual where they have sought out reassurance that they are right for getting up in other people's business - without taking the presented opportunities to gather more information.  That really rubs me the wrong way.

      There is concern, and then there is straight up trying to control by intentionally avoiding clarification - and I see that happening here.

      YMMV.

      And we sail and we sail and we never see land, just the rum in the bottle and a pipe in my hand...
