Today, readers comment on the law versus youthful creativity, new glass versus heritage bluestone, vacant public housing and forest management.

Commenting on the opinion piece: The prank’s on conformist Adelaide: YouTuber should be celebrated, not charged

What a refreshing article by Adrian, and hopefully it achieves the desired result of the charges being withdrawn and the brothers free to pursue their creativity.

The sad aspect is that it demonstrates once again that we have lost the dynamism and passion to pursue change for the good exhibited in the Dunstan years. – John Walsh

Perfectly put, Adrian! – Chris Miller

Cannot agree more with Adrian’s take on the RackaRacka boys’ recent brush with the law.

It is a sad, sad day when we lose our sense of humour and waste critical time and resources on seeking out the likes of these artist pranksters to charge them with offences.

 Are they criminals? No! Are they lads having some fun and being clever – yes! Maz McGann

Adrian Tisato’s article appears to be another version of a news beat-up based on false facts.

What I recall from seeing the original piece in the recognised media is that the changes against Michael Philippou include driving an unregistered (therefore uninsured) vehicle without a licence.

The fact that he had no accident is extremely fortunate for him, because if he had been involved in an accident he and his innocent victims would have been in legal limbo.

Although an interesting, entertaining interlude, nevertheless this prank has serious legal implications because of the apparent violations of the Road Traffic Act, hence in no way can be condoned.

The ends definitely do not justify the means. – Ian Sando

Commenting on the story: Heritage cottages under threat from new hotel but no public consultation

What the hell is wrong with people. Melbourne may as well demolish Captain Cook’s cottage and Sydney, Cadman’s Cottage at the historic Rocks area.

Yes, I do understand the need for more housing but why is it done at an historic building’s expense?

Wake up Adelaide and don’t bow to the almighty dollar. Richard Forbes

Commenting on the story: Millions unspent as Parkside public housing block sits empty

I would love to see it used as affordable housing for regional kids attending uni in Adelaide. – Leah Grace

Commenting on the story: Call to axe logging in national parks to cut bushfire risk

A review of how forests and native vegetation is managed is long overdue to correct the plundering of our natural heritage and biodiversity.

It’s our greatest asset and a  concerted, properly funded effort to defend and replenish nature is needed, using the skills and knowledge of Aboriginal Australians, the best science and regenerative farming practices. Greg Sarre
