Nextdoor

Nextdoor, perhaps as bad as Wikipedia (much smaller and on its way out of business or to be acquired) and twice as stupid.

The reality distortion field around Nextdoor is telling; an example of this is the stock symbol "kind."
They also managed to infiltrate the media with propaganda, and PR.

At first, Wikipedia hates nextdoor's "racist" guts but then goes full retard schizophrenic PR later in the article. It's usually the other way around where Wikipedia is glowing and then has a small paragraph regarding criticism.

Bizarro talk page and a Wiki administrator involved of course; along with an abandoned-user with an ip address that questioned the integrity of the article.

Like Wikipedia's outcropping from the porn site "Bomis;" Nextdoor has its roots in the founders/CEO's/Nirav Tolia's hit and run accident;

Tolia a tech mogul involved started several "etoys sockpuppet" ventures during the internet startup-scam window leaving valuable options of real companies on the table. To quote myself, "there is no bad idea that silicon valley doesn't like." Bad ideas that are born to fail founded by nerdowell-sociopaths live on the tit of venture capital creating societal and economic chaos in their wake.

and of course he gets off with a misdemeanor - with a snaggulpus type exit from the company stage right!

then he gets wikipedia scrubbed
by a now semi-dormant Wikipedia power-loser admin

but Tolia's peers are notable because they compounded unicorn wealth into venture cap, or they now work for google!
Google -> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ramanathan_V._Guha
Funding ventures-> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naval_Ravikant
Of course Tolia found his way to shark tank in a guest appearance but for all effective purposes he is scrubbed.

Nextdoor a different flavor of the same kind of Social Media petri (putrid) dish.
