@NextDoor is very flawed. #Homophobia

@NextDoor removed my account 2 weeks ago because a few homophobic people made unwarranted complaints about my use of the site. They were trolling and they were on a mission. Now, NextDoor has removed my boyfriend’s posts as well because many of us complained about the unfairness of the “NextDoor Police” (volunteer leads in the neighborhood who are given the authority to make high-level decisions on behalf of the service). NextDoor is not what you think. It SHOULD be what it states as its mission statement but falls short. The folks running the show offer no warning before deleting comments, posts, and accounts. There doesn’t seem to be a single monkey in the place trying to keep the social site FAIR. Kicking people off for being gay? Terminating user profiles for using swear words? Suspending users for politely speaking their minds in neighborhood threads? Ignoring racist comments towards other users? Not OK.
My boyfriend and I use this site/service mostly to HELP our community and people/animals in it. But because we’re gay (and I don’t lay down for rude remarks), we get a lot of hate messages and a lot of fake complaints. And NextDoor ignores the hate and homophobia- but acts on false complaints- with no warning.
This is a very unfair “system” (I use that term loosely as they don’t really have much structure to their “guidelines”. I used that term loosely too, lol). And it’s shocking that they would allow this to happen especially considering they are Silicon Valley Startup.

Nevermind the homophobes and racists, Shame on you NextDoor for allowing this. Shame on you.

I’m sure the boyfriend’s account will be deleted just for posting a very similar, yet very true statement to the community on NextDoor.
One day they will get sued for discriminating/allowing discrimination towards some of their users. Shame on you @NextDoor.

    I AM SORRY THIS IS HAPPENING TO YOU AND YOUR BOYFRIEND. I DON’T GIVE A SHIT WHAT ANY BODY DOES IN THEIR BEDROOM, OR ANYWHERE ELSE FOR THAT MATTER. I THOUGHT THIS WAS A SITE FOR SHARING INFO, HEADS UP ON THEFTS LOST PETS, FOR SALE STUFF, FREE STUFF, NEEDING HELP WITH STUFF, AND HELPING OTHERS, RANTS AND RAVES. MAYBE MAKE FRIENDS, THOUGH I DON’T SEE THIS AS A SITE FOR THAT. I HAVE SEEN YOUR POSTS, I DON’T KNOW YOU OR YOUR BOYFRIEND. ARE YOU SURE IT WAS BECAUSE YOUR GAY, THAT YOU WERE KICKED OFF?? OR MAYBE BECAUSE YOUR A HYBRID, A SPECIFIC TASTE, THAT I MAY THINK YOUR BONKERS AND FUNNY, OTHERS, MAYBE NOT SO MUCH? I THINK YOU HAVE BEEN KIND TO ANIMALS THAT’S FOR SURE, YOU HAVE SAVED SOME KITTIES LIVES, THAT’S FOR SURE!!! YOU ARE GENEROUS, KIND, GIVING, HAPPY BORDERING ON ELATION:>)…WHO CAN’T APPRECIATE THAT???, I HOPE IT’S NOT HE REASON, BUT IF IT IS, IT’S A SAD COMMENTARY OF HOW MUCH WE HAVE NOT GROWN AS A COMMUNITY!!

      Thanks. Much appreciated.
      Yea, there’s a small group of men and women who are haters and have been doing this since they realized 2 guys live together in the same neighborhood as theirs.
      It’s too bad, because it’s a complete waste of time.

    No, it had nothing to do with you being gay, and everything to do with what and how you posted.

    Stop the fake victimizing.

      Hey there fake name person. You’re even too much of a p*ssy to use your real name. So since this is my blog and you came here and can’t even be honest with yourself, may I suggest that you go outside, bend over, and go f*ck yourself? Can you do that? Do you think you could do that for all of us? Can you go f*ck yourself? And I don’t know if this will help any, but your wife’s a wh*re, your mother’s a sl*t and your children are probably all little idiots.

      You see how this works? When someone can say whatever they want over the Internet to someone else it can literally get that bad. So why don’t you man up, use your real name and tell all of us interested parties what your real f*cking problem is. Oh, and #EatMe
      You’re Welcome.

      PS, I would be happy to have you come over to our house and explain to us what your f*cking problem is. I don’t think you have the guts to come knock on our door and tell us why you’re such an idiot. That makes you a little p*ssy. Kind of like a f*ggot, don’t you think?

    NextDoor was started in SF by a gay man. They’re not homophobic. Did you comply with their community guidelines? Fake homophobia “hate crimes” detract from the real ones Virgo. You hurt us all this way.

      Yet another person using another fake name. Splendid. I don’t care who started it or what city, do you really think fake homophobia hate crime complaints are up my alley? I’m sure you’ve been stalking me long enough to know that I’m pretty much just a hysterically fun man child who loves animals. So you’re way off base pegging me as a victim of homophobia, hatred, and a troublemaker. Honestly, you’re probably the same person who wrote the post just above you. Or you’re at his house, because it’s posted from the same IP address. You’re dumb. Both of you. Or just the one of you, LOL.
      Get a life.
      YOU detract from people being able to utilize the NextDoor site when you harass people like you do. And I’m pretty sure you hurt yourself, I have nothing to do with your feeling #Butthurt. LOL.

    VocalVirgo, firstly let me just say your blog, and all your social media is funny as hell. Secondly, I know who the couple of people are that are hating on you and your boyfriend. To be honest, one of them doesn’t care that you Boys are gay, he just doesn’t like you because of the way you talk/your humor. He doesn’t have a sense of humor so why would he like yours…? But yet the other one is actually a homophobe- and his wife is too, who does not like you guys because you live together and, if I may say it like you would, do it in the butt together, LOLOL!
    I’m also not going to use my name in here only because I don’t need the one guy’s wife giving me crap. She knows I don’t agree with their views and she can be really rude at times. I’ll just avoid that. 🙂 God bless you and keep up the good work with the animals and making half of the state of California laugh their asses off.

    I would LOVE to see all the skeletons fall out of their closets [once the doors open]. They really need to either find Jesus or a hobby to occupy themselves some other way, so immature!
