    While most problems on Nextdoor are inherent in any social forum anywhere, it is their corporate staff who are the most alarming. We started a group on ND as alternative to the vindictively censored one run by our domineering and cliquish neighborhood association on Yahoo. Nextdoor has tons of groups like ours. They said they would respect and defend us. They let us grow to hundreds of members but then they let people from the Ass’n harass us online. Then they abruptly kicked us off and re-assigned admin control to members of the Ass’n!!!

    Google “Dawson Seized” and pick the top result. That’s us.

    Prior to that, a member of Nextdoor’s executive staff personally suspended all of our admin “lead” accounts and held us hostage to force us to assist him in testing the website’s security! He spent several days turning the screws on us, treating us like a fly in his web. He would have terminated us for refusing, if not for the fact that we were organizing a neighborhood picnic and people were missing us online. He re-instated our accounts to LOOK like admin accounts, but we no longer had our abilities. We had to get his permission to do things. Also, he arranged that we admins would no longer get most posts from our city officials and police, likely so we couldn’t leave comments there about ND that the whole city could see. That act denied us access to our public officials and left us uninformed about dangers in the area!

    Please do not put your neighborhood community on Nextdoor! Democracy and free speech are not a part of their DNA! They might be a private corporation who can make up their own rules, but in a country like ours, free speech is (was?) central to our way of life. It is horrifying that they scorn civil liberties and ban open conversation in favor of a hazy “community guidelines”. They use those like a hammer to quash anyone who they don’t want to become a community “influencer”. They micromanage and pick our leaders! Neighborhoods aren’t allowed to develop their own boundaries and culture.

    Nextdoor exists to herd people into channels and ferret out those who are good at debate. Like facebook, they’re trying to train people to think it’s “fun” and “neighborly” to divulge all sorts of personal details, marching ahead into a brave new world.

    Oh my god!! Thank you for writing this. Hilarious! My husband just brought in the mail and there was a solicitation from NextDoir.com. Previously, the only time I had ever heard of “Nextdoir.com” was in Andrea Savages’s show “I’n Sorry” and I honestly thought it was just a plotlibe joke! Boy … was I wrong! Now I am torn about signing up .. I mean .. who couldn’t use a daily bout of hysterical laughter from neighborly insanity and lack of common sense! Thanks again for the wonderful, hilarious heads-up!!

    Its a pet lover’s site, 80 plus percent pet site. I’m out. I love animals, but most pet owners are obsessed with their pets and they adopted Nextdoor, then took it over.
