Use the 2002 NEC to provide a specific code section reference list of what you see wrong here and how you would write a violation notice.

Looks like phone and network wiring, isn't it?
Or did I overlook something?
My thoughts would be lack of support and too many wires.

Looks just like most of the computer closets at the university here...the network administrators just give blank looks when you casually mention codes...

electure,
Per 90-3 Chapter 8 stands alone, so 300.11(A) doesn't apply to this installation. I don't see this rule in Article 800.

It wouldn't be the fact that the computer lines are tyewraped to the armored cable in the ceiling would it? It is ugly but I have seen much worse.
