Yes, it’s definitely a private contract issue. If you don’t want to abide by the deed restrictions, don’t buy the property.
Governments have been limiting these rights for some time and for a variety of reasons. When I issued title opinions along the eastern seaboard, deeds frequently contained restrictions that limited purchasers of property to certain races or religions. Those restrictions now fail. The legal effect is read the deed as if the void restrictions were simply not present.
Here in Texas, the state generally prefers to enforce private agreements. But, the Legislature did limit HOAs a bit. HOAs cannot, with limited exceptions of course, prohibit renewable energy improvements, or prohibit the flying of either the US or Texas flags. The latter has nothing to do with renewable energy, I just found it interesting.
I agree with you about the panels. I think they look pretty cool. Transparent solar cells could be an amazing step. It’s interesting to imagine a world in which every glass pane generates energy. Coupled with some of the wireless energy transfer technologies that appear on this site, we could be on the verge of an energy boom, unprecedented in human history.
The catchphrase soon came to be used as a way to mock the commercially successful Cell-Tech product line, deemed by many members of the forum community to be over-hyped and relatively ineffective for its price. Due to the naive nature of the question and Ronnie’s sarcastic response, the catchphrase was often employed by Misc forum members to give troll responses to unsuspecting members requesting honest workout and nutrition/supplements advice. This often lead to confusion among new members not yet in on the joke as to whether Cell-Tech was a legitimate product or an illegal substance similar to anabolic steroids. Because of this, forum trolls often supplemented the joke by making references to “cycling” and “stacking” Cell-Tech, like one would steroids.
