NYC Subway Deface Website

A friend of mine just turned me on to the website NYC Subway Deface. As the name would suggest it's a collection of NYC subway defacements. While many of the defacements are juvenile scrawl, the sheer volume of posts attests to the numbers of NY'ers who feel the need or right to talk back to commercial media. To me this site also proves that the witch hunt against Posterboy was a farce given the ubiquity of subway advertising alterations.
