It’s certainly beyond my ability to judge anyone for environmental or social gauche behavior, I can’t even recognize my own most of the time. For me, part of the beauty of the lake is the lake at night. Especially on a good low moon, clear night when the relatively, and now more like formerly, dark skies at Lake martin allow you to clearly see the Milky Way etc. So, and again, for me and mine, if you want to look across the lake and see detail instead of bright points of light surrounded by vague fuzziness, or if you want to sit on your dock at night and look at the stars without the glare from a neighbor's light allowing you to do shadow puppets on your pontoon boat, then you see extraneous light as a nuisance and a kind of pollution. So you star gaze late or during the week when folks are less likely to be there with their big lights on.....except for dawn to dusk lights. They are guaranteed to blind 365 days a year and all night each one of them.

I understand there are lakes in the southeast that require dawn to dusk lighting to be of a type that shines straight down but is shielded around the sides. This makes me believe it’s not just a problem particular to me.
