Weird Condo (HOA) Rules

"Well, that's interesting. It allows for contract law to supersede 
homeownership and privacy rights. If a condo association adopts bylaws 
prohibiting smoking in the units, and you smoke, then maybe this is not the 
condo community for you.
But where is the end to all this? What about associations that prohibit 
watching commercial television; or drinking soda; or engaging in hanky-panky? I 
am starting to imagine that maybe there is a website out there called Could be very entertaining.
Remember the not so good old days when land covenants prohibited racial or 
religious integration? Not all 'laws' are good just because they are law. Some 
just happen to get passed by powerful bigots. Racial bigots, religious bigots, 
health bigots and even aesthetic bigots. They're in charge of creating 
'historic' districts.  Culture changes and so do laws.

Thanks for writing.
