Zik is among the many outraged to see graffiti scrawled all along the Dartmouth Street side of the Copley Square library this morning.
"Not cool," Mister Jason opines after seeing a defaced 6 outside Fenway Park last night.
A graffiti-hating citizen reports this "illegal graffiti" on Bolton Street in South Boston. We await the city blasting this off, to be followed by a complaint about unleashed dogs running amok on Bolton.

Harry Wong noticed today that somebody spent a fair amount of time decorating a Green Line trolley at the Cleveland Circle yard with a large representation of a classic English word.
Alas for Tagger Dude, that's an un-rebuilt old trolley, so it's not going anywhere, except to get fixed and repaired (the Globe reports it's not one of the trolleys heading to upstate New York for a major overhaul). Also, when it comes to taggers, T cops go into Mountie mode.
iFnLvBos wonders about the meaning of this scrawl at the Harvard Square T stop.
Informally, it asks whether every problem whose solution can be quickly verified by a computer can also be quickly solved by a computer. It was essentially first mentioned in a 1956 letter written by Kurt GĂ¶del to John von Neumann.
Matt Conti at NorthEndWaterfront.com forwarded this photo of the defacement of the Christopher Columbus statue in Columbus Park some time last night.
By noon today, the paint and message were completely gone after a thorough power washing by a city crew.
Over the years, the statue has been marked up by people with a point to make - once, the statue was even decapitated.
A roving UHub correspondent alerted us yesterday to this swastika on the rear wall of 66 Hereford St. in the Back Bay. It was still there this afternoon, granted, in an alley behind a parked car.
A concerned citizen critiques the unknown artist's recent oeuvre:
You can't be a tortured artist if you don't have talent. This person is tagging the whole neighborhood and it's really becoming a problem. Mostly because it's not good art.
That word comes too late for a pair of Boston residents, whom Transit Police report were literally caught red handed on charges of defacing the driver's door of a Red Line trains last night.
Police say that around 8 p.m. yesterday, somebody punched in their digits to report that two guys who had been marking up the driver's door on a Red Line train were getting off at Downtown Crossing.
A Union-backing citizen complains about some graffiti on a bench along the water near the Aquarium:
Weird pro-confederate propaganda graffiti on the benches by the water.
Boston Magazine reports somebody went around the outside of the MFA spray painting bad renditions of Homer Simpson - including on the base of "Appeal to the Great Spirit" on Huntington Avenue.
Ed. question: Anybody notice the explosion of graffiti along the Orange Line from Forest Hills to just past Back Bay over the last few months?
Somerville Nieghborhood News interviews the Not Art guy, who lives in Somerville:
In the past, creating ânot artâ was something he did for fun. But this year, after he lost two food service jobs in three months, he decided it was a sign that he should pursue art full-time. ... "I'm planning on staying here,â he said. "I'm not going to be moving to Brooklyn like everybody else."
