COMMENT: I am glad you mentioned Nextdoor.com in your newsletter. Some of our members use this site to rant endlessly about the board, the manager, and everything else in our association. They have bullied other members and polarized our community. The site has turned into a toxic dump. -Anonymous
RESPONSE: National Public Radio disabled the "comment" portion of their website. They discovered that "public" input turned out to be only .06% of their listeners. They also discovered that the majority of that tiny fraction consisted mostly of disaffected ranters who were abusive and posted endlessly. In other words, the crazies took over.
Recommendation: Whoever runs your Nextdoor network should set guidelines and block anyone who uses the forum to rant endlessly or bullies other members or uses foul or abusive language. Otherwise, it deteriorates into a harmful echo chamber complainers and bullies.
