I will say that it does take way, way too much energy for a battle. I could be using that time fixing my car. After I've had one, now I realize why people go out of their way to get along. It's just much less work. That said, sometimes you gotta fight the good fight. The best defense really is a good offense. edit: I went to go pick up some parts from a guy in the country here in Ohio. That kind of acreage seems to make for less neighbor complaints. And good offroad trails.
