Most see deed restrictions as very beneficial to a neighborhood and admittedly don’t bother to read what they agreed to and were provided (shocked when called out). The restrictions usually follow widely standardized templates and are not normally a problem until someone thinks only their opinion counts or the “too busy to care” owners elect a bunch of over zealous control freaks.

The anger is only going to increase when everyone knows they’re moochers on the government teat.
