Posted on an apartment bulletin board after the newly functional front gate--which was also newly very loud--had been silenced by a little well-placed padding, which someone kept removing:

WHOEVER DID THIS REMOVE THE SECOND TIME THE FORM ON THE FRONT GATE DOOR. THE FORM IS FOR AGAINST THE NOISE DING DONG BANG METAL LOUD DURING THE NIGHT. HOW COULD EVERYONE TRYING TO SLEEP FROM ANNOY NOISE LOUD METAL WHEN THE GATE IS CLOSING DOOR??? DO YOU LIKE TO PLAYING GAME EVERYONE ELSE OR YOU LIKE TO WAKE YOU UP WHEN SLAP THE GATE DOOR LOUD? STOP REMOVE THE DAMN FORM AND LEAVE IT ALONE ALL THE TIME!!!!!! THANK YOU.................
