To the annoying guy canvassing outside the main Chase bank in Downtown Portland: To be clear, I don't support the cause you were trying to get more people to support, but you didn't have to repeatedly shout "Come fight anti-equality laws, one signature at a time!" Do you not seem to realize that turns people away from you 99.9% of the time? Do you not seem to care that most people who walk by you treat you as if you don't exist? Later, I saw you again preaching next to the MAX stop across the street from Pioneer Square. I felt very tempted to go up to you and burn your signs and physically assault you, but there was another person with you also preaching. If you want more people to support your "cause", get out of Portland before someone forces you to.
