Where to start? I was on my local Nextdoor board for a couple years and found it helpful. Ever since mid 2016 the atmosphere on there has been poisonous. Some other reviewer called it a playground for Trump supporters, boy is that right! I am seeing posts with titles that look like something you'd see on Storm front. One helpful lady made a post with the title 'Black man screaming F**k White People at our house'. The F word was spelled out in the title. Mods refused to change it. Others just as bad. I've received nasty personal messages ridiculing me, Most of this stuff started in the election campaign and has just kept up. This board does nothing to foster a community spirit. Moderation is non existent. Report someone and more likely you'll get in trouble.
I get so tired of reading about lost pets then finding out they were not tagged or licensed and allowed to run all over the place. Tired of complaints about thefts from parked cars left unlocked; of cars being stolen that were parked with the keys in them.
I should add that I have seen comments on here from folks in places like CA and MA saying this is a left wing site. I dispute that; I think it is more a matter of whomever is in the majority in a given area applying bullying methods to stifle someone they disagree with. My area is deeply 'Red' politically, I got caught up in an argument about another member who kept having her yard sign stolen/trashed; it was one of those 'Celebrate Diversity' ones. I simply cited my own experience of having political signs trashed in my yard (for a 'Liberal' candidate). The mod contacted me a day later, I was getting threats implying violence toward myself and my family for being a 'Commie'.
Unless you enjoy feuding with neighbors stay away.
