How about segregrated inclusiveness? What's that mean? Well in this
context it means a sort of Randesque egoism, allowing everyone to do what
they feel, without infringing the right of others to do the same.
Specifically, how about designating certain spaces as taggable (galleries
even, for this "artform"). Those of us who don't appreciate that sort of
"art" are not subjected to it during our daily commutes, but those who must
express themselves that way have an outlet for it. Basically it comes down
to "live and let live."
