developer droppings
 n.pl.— «In the meantime, when you see what I call “developer droppings” (ugly signage placed in the public right-of-way), please safely grab a load and dispose of it. It’s incredibly tacky, can actually diminish surrounding property values, and it’s also illegal to put it there.» —“To protect our rights, we must acknowledge those of developers” by Paul Allen in Norcross Atlanta Journal-Constitution (Georgia) Sept. 9, 2007.
