Well, when you know it's that new neighbor it might be good to just speak to him/her directly. The way you do it is annoying to you and your neighbor since he/she always might have to reverse it out awkwardly. Some people don't get those "subtle" hints.
It might be a good idea to begin with "I appreciate you taking the bike because of environmental conciousness/fitness/clogged up roads with other cars, but unfortunately the way you are currently parking your bike doesn't leave enough space to comfortably walk through there. I'm sure you don't want people parking their cars on cycle paths, unfortunately this is the equivalent of bicycle parking". Yes, he/she might be aggressive towards that, but it might be better than years of just moving the bike out of the way just to find it parked exactly the same the next day.
I will continue to politely move it as many times as I need to until he finally gets it and starts parking his bike somewhere else. Even if it takes me a hundred years.
I would think that the RFID range would be enough where you can dig out the RFID chip from the old filter and tape it to the new one. Kind of like this:My GE refrigerator uses DRM for the water filters.
The XWFE filters are 100% identical to the non-RFID-equipped XWF, aside from the DRM. The "official" filters are $50 each, but the DRM locks us out from using 3rd party filters which I've seen for as low as $10each when bought in a 3-pack. So over the course of a year, these filters will cost us an extra ~$100/year.
I think we may look into getting an external filter system, that used cheaper filters, and then just adding the non-filtering "bypass" attachment.
