An annoyed citizen complains:
These dirt biker gangs need to be off the streets. One was on I-93S just north of exit 18 and was blocking multiple lanes of traffic as well as impeding lane changes. They were driving slowly and performing dirt bike stunts. One of these idiots hit my car with something and left scuff marks and dents in it. It's about time we get a task force together to get rid of them. This doesn't happen anywhere else in this state that I've seen.

A concerned citizen complains about this guy who seems to have set up housekeeping on the one public-access dock in Fort Point Channel:
Fort Point Harbor Walk squatter has returned. Scaring off visitors who dare to venture onto the dock.
A groggy citizen complains about the playground on W. 5 Street in South Boston:
There is loud screaming and basketball played 24 hours a day, including the middle the of night. The noise is a nuisance to its residential surroundings, especially those with children trying to sleep.
A concerned citizen reports on the constant squeaking on Chestnut Avenue in Jamaica Plain:
The neighbors have an extremely loud weather vane on top of their house. It squeaks all day and night. I'm not sure where to put this request as I've talked to some tenants and they can't go up on the roof and get it down. This is a weird request but it's noise pollution and it's so loud.
Ed. note: I chose not to post either of the photos, but you can either use your imagination or you can click on the links to see dirty diapers on top of snow.
BuzzFeed introduces us to Jan Rankowski, a Maine man who posted a YouTube video that showed him with the car he claimed he wrecked while on the way to terrorize Arlington game developer Brianna Wu - forced to flee her home last year under a deluge of horrible and specific threats from GamerGate manboys.
Turns out Rankowski is a member of a sketch-comedy group and says, ha ha, he was just trying to satirize GamerGate. And now that his secret is out and GamerGate is doing the same sort of harassment against him that they did against Wu, he says, oops, he has newfound sympathy for Wu and other women game developers.
And there are reasons not to, as Norwood Police reminded its Twitter followers tonight:

A woman swearing like a sailor, the man who insulted her and the glass of wine she threw in response earned Papa Razzi, 157 Newbury St., a formal hearing before the Boston Licensing Board today.
According to both police and the restaurant manager who tried to quell the commotion around 9:10 p.m. on Dec. 3, a woman was loudly swearing about something around 9 p.m.
A Harvard Business School professor goes nuclear - he's still considering whether to sue - when a Chinese restaurant in Brookline overcharges him by $4.
A concerned citizen complains about a thoughtless dog owner in the park at W. 3 and B streets in South Boston:
Woman in park with dog off leash. This is a No Dog park. A neighbor went out to tell her and she was yelling at him and being very rude. Please have park patrolled and ticket people like her- tons of babies play there and I'm sure the Southie mother's group won't be happy to hear their kids are playing in dog pee.
The windsurfer now realizes you were right and apologizes for cursing you out.
An irate citizen complains about some neighbors on Charter Street in the North End:
Obnoxious 1st floor renters loudly taping beer rating podcast and making sexist jokes keeping folks awake, followed by marijuana smoke rising into our windows. Add to the list of problem north end properties. Absentee landlord...
A fed-up Beacon Hill resident complains that a lady across Revere Street keeps walking across the street with her trash and leaving it for the trash guys in front of the resident's home:
We moved her trash back to her address, but would appreciate your intervention.
A West Roxbury District Court judge today admonished two neighbors to grow up and stop battling over their property line.
She reserved particular ire for a 72-year-old woman whose neighbor captured her video on his property scaring his kids and then smashing a glass deck table by throwing a rock at it. The woman, who had requested a restraining order against her neighbor and who walked into court with a cane, had denied ever going on his property, let alone destroying his furniture, but then the man produced his video camera and the judge watched a video showing the incident.
