Self appointed in the sense that he piped up at a meeting, or otherwise suggested to the neighborhood association that a neighborhood watch would be a good idea, in light of the recent burglaries and hot breakins. As is not unusual when somebody suggests a task, they are also assigned it. I don't know how many others, if any, schedule time to watch the neighborhood. We do know he's not the only one calling the police. He makes about 10% of the calls from the community.

Yes, that's exactly how things have gone for me with regard to volunteer organizations. I learned a long time ago not to suggest something unless I was ready to do a bunch of the work. :-)

Where did you find that 10% number? Do you have a hard source for it? Even with the "self-appointed" vs. "group" neighborhood watch, the sources I have are only from news stories, and I have found so many news stories that are absolutely wrong, that I am leery about believing anything that isn't sourced properly.

That’s pretty good.

Mine were red.

I don't chase down external blog posts of unknown sources.

If you think the posts are authentic, post a url link.

I really don’t know if they’re authentic or not; I am a non-tech person. I’d rather freepmail it to you since it got deleted once. Just ask me if you’d like it.

There is debate about it on this thread, can’t remember if there is a link still up, I think perhaps not. I just checked, there is a link to a cached page that has it, the War Chick’s site also has it with discussion, ask me if you want that link too.
