Sometimes it can't be avoided, but where possible, don't use 'get' and 'got' when it is used as a substitute for actually...actually being articulate and having a vocabulary that exceeds grunting 'that's cool', 'it sucks', and 'awesome' (the latter, I understand, starting to become tedious even in America!...though probably to be replaced by 'excruciating' or similar bastardization.)
This holds true for formal and semi-formal writing and speech; and is mainly used in informal conversation when you are purposely 'dumbing down' e.g.
"I've got a damn cold" compared with, "I've caught a cold."
The second point was the use of 'attention' in the sentence. Does the writer mean 'publicity' as in 'media attention', or that the man in the street is more likely to be aware of and call the police about a neighbour's noise- and feuds develop over somebody's loud parties in the street - than he is to complain about air quality! How can I follow someone's gist and its implications in order to respond intelligently, if I'm not really sure what he's referring to!
Whether the writer means 'attention' or 'publicity' isn't clear; but such observations (that strike me as a Britisher) seem to be regarded as hair-splitting after they travel any distance over salt water. If all one is interested in is the general 'sense' of what a person is conveying, then my stance would seem irritatingly nitpicking.
