I had a few confrontations with the HOA officers to the point where I had to get a restraining order on two of them. Since then they don't bother me other than have the actual HOA mgmt company write me a letter. I've made it very clear to them that I have no hesitancy to drag them the HOA into a legal battle that would bankrupt them. Not by winning but by legal costs they can't afford.
The cause of this was that several of the HOA officers expected the community to like a retirement community, which it is not. They would yell at my kids for playing at the community park or riding bikes in the street in front of our house. I put up with it for a few years than turned my passivity into pure legal aggression.
It's back to a family community again.
