There are threads in the archives, scroll to the bottom of the page to access.

None are fast or painless. I'd like to find the guy who replaced workmanship with this stuff.

I normally just throw a fresh 1/4 drywall on top. easiest and will give you a nice new surface. If you scrape it off you most likely need to skimcoat it when you are done, least my from my experience and removing those things.. I would rather hang/tape than have all that mess falling over my head.

I'd rather just tear it down and start over. About the same mess.

Thanks for the replies. I knew about the pump sprayer deal, but foolish as I am, thought there maight be a better way. Hope I can find my rain slicker--it's looks like it's gonna be raining pocorn.

I use a Porter Cable Drywall sander with 80 grit sanding disk, attached to a Loveless Drywall vaccum. Not a bit of mess, no water needed what so ever, a little dust, but would rather have a little dust than a big muddy mess.
