Some take their love of language and punctuation that much further

A thought Apr 3, 2017

Well he does have a point, even if some would say there is a question mark over the legality of his actions.

He can always dash if there is a risk of getting caught.

The guy is clearly not slashing tyres out there. The only thing that could put a full stop to his work would be falling flat face from a ladder... and a period on brackets.

Thoughts Apr 4, 2017

Maybe he could become a star in a film about a slasher haunting a trematised person having an accent during the colonial era.

By the way, he ought to bring along a woman when correcting the signs their owners have made a hash of, as a sign of equality. It would be a plus for his reputation if we know he doesn't think he's greater than women.

Ditto Apr 4, 2017

However, allow me to underscore that he's plus or minus dodged the bullet of being put behind bars for correction in the first degree. No one would put his neck under the guillemet, despite the dire critics.
