Two things ; I don't think we should assume that the owners/renters of condo/townhouse/loft complexes are mostly ''yuppies'', techies''etc. Many working class people own Condos because that's all they can afford to buy . They are usually much cheaper than a detached Single family home with a yard.
i know many SEIU 1021 Union workers (most of them Black, Asian. or Latino ) live in that Townhouse complex starting at 19th and Telegraph in Oakland .
Secondly Even if some are Middle Class professionals Should they be harassed ? Are Dentists, for example, ''Class enemies "' ? I think not.
I am supportive of actions against evictions and foreclosures such as having a 24 hr watch in support of families under threat of being thrown out of their homes. And disruptions of those auctions of foreclosed properties are very good .
But our enemies are the Multi MIllionaire real estate hustlers not just anyone who manage to make a income in the high five figures

There is such transgressive weight in these random annoyances and petty acts of vandalism. The ambitious regime of modern anarchists visits dissatisfaction upon us all!

I wouldn't take much that 'sludge' says at face value.
