Yarn bombing should NOT be illegal it is completely temporary, it improves other peoples moods, and it is fun!

Yarn bombing is a type of graffiti. It is going to mainly be on private or city property, not the yarn bomber's own house. If the yarn bomber wanted to put the yarn on/near their house, that's fine. But when they move to city or private property, that's completely different.
It isn't their special place to use their yarn. They should keep the yarn bombing to their house, where they can do what they want, or their front/back yards.
Finally, yarn bombing will require a lot of cleanup. Say they put the yarn on every tree in a park. Who is going to remove the yarn? Probably not the yarn bomber themselves. They will leave it there for someone to pick up.
Also, how does it improve someone's mood? There is no evidence for this.

Although it is called yarn graffiti, it is not actually graffiti. the definition on google is-

writing or drawings scribbled, scratched, or sprayed illicitly on a wall or other surface in a public place.

Search it up. Yarn bombing is NOT true graffiti. And it does improve your mood. You know decorations on front lawns on Christmas? Some people walk around and look at it solely because it improves the festive mood. And again, yarn bombing is completely temporary, and some yarn companies are making biodegradable yarn for yarn bombing. Most yarn bombs are cleaned up anyways.

I don't think artists ever intended for yarn bombing to be a type of graffiti. I think we need to define what graffiti is first. Also, In the examples of yarn bombing I have seen, They are meant to beautify a space, And in my opinion should be left to do just that!
