Lawrence / 2Cor521 - I have to admit we did the anonymous note thing a number of years ago, too. It wasn't an HOA thing, but it was water-related. We were in a severe drought at the time, the reservoirs were dangerously low and people's wells were running dry. There were very strict water restrictions - no lawn or garden watering, no car washing. Our extremely obnoxious neighbor (with whom we had previous run-ins) insisted on mowing his grass twice a week; I guess he hadn't noticed that it was too dry to grow at all. Every time he'd mow the lawn, he'd spend a good 1/2 hour or so hosing off his driveway, inch by inch. It made us crazy, it was such a huge waste of water, and it was expressly forbidden to use water to clean sidewalks and driveways. Rather than confront him (we're SO non-confrontational), we printed out the water restriction rules and highlighted the appropriate paragraph, and left it in his mailbox. He did stop after that.
