    Except you are refusing to accept one important part of the equation.

    Unless you stay there, you are not providing information only. If someone else takes the spot, and the person who you expect to pay for it doesn't, how do you know without waiting and verifying the person who took the spot is the one willing to pay for it?

    LOL...

    Seriously?

    Are you going to plug in $3/hr in the meter to pick your fingernails?

    Did you read the part where I found a free spot near the Maritime Museum? These aren't the only free spots in the city, you know.

    But the point is there are no conditions placed on when I can leave, as long as I'm within the allowed window. So it's really no one else's business about WHEN I leave the spot. If I want to wait to give it to a hot blonde, I can do that, right? Not saying I would, but I'm well within my rights to do that, am I not?

    Indeed so.

    But you are not within your rights to receive money for your time spent waiting.

    Well, the 11th is a few short days away.

    I can't wait to hear the liberal pundits complain about what happens...

    Through more than two hundred posts, no one has explained to me the legal basis that allows San Francisco to apply a local ordinance to a foreign-based corporation that has no physical presence in San Francisco. On what basis can San Francisco regulate foreign commercial activity on the Internet?

    They might not be able to, except as an accessory to crime. Didn't someone post SF laws showing why the practice was illegal?

    By the same token, you're ignoring my point concerning my right to vacate a spot when I choose to vacate it. You're also telling me I don't have the right to tell someone else when I choose to vacate it (even if it's for money), because, when you cut to the chase, that's the only effective way you can prevent me from holding a spot for someone who needs it.

    We can go round and round forever. At the end of the day, we will still disagree. I hope the police do patrol and ticket the unethical actions of those staying longer in a spot, for a few bux.

    Yeah, I think, in the end, we can just agree to disagree. I can't think of anything to say that I haven't already, and when you start repeating yourself it's time to quit. But I appreciate everyone's participation and consider the thread to have been a success. Never in a million years did I expect a mundane topic like public parking to garner such spirited discussion. Thanks for your contribution.
