Maybe it should be reproduced on VBB's "can't miss them" notices so anyone that goes up can be in no doubt not only that they're doing what they've been asked not to but also that they ARE contributing to cumulative damage. A lot would decide not to at that point I'm sure.

I agree, I think many would decide not to.

I also agree with what you (half jokingly perhaps) referred to regarding psychology.
Just as an exmaple, imagine several signs, one after the other. Friendly, welcoming, but each urging (some might say begging) people not to climb the monument. Something like that would make the guillt of ignoring those pleas quite large in most peoples minds.

Its fairly easy to get people to do/think what you want, you just have to know the tricks I guess.
