9-28-2023: Moderately nice

A brief timeline of a brief suspension on Nextdoor in Sept 2023

In short, Nextdoor doesn't like when users talk about moderation on the main news feed. They do describe this in their guidelines. Moderation exists at various levels in Nextdoor: corporate people, corporate programs, community moderators, etc. To have your account suspended/disabled, Nextdoor corporate will be involved and have been decently responsive via email. It's possible to communicate with a person at corporate who can offer useful info and/or reconsider your situation.


My take away

No conspiracies, no ALL CAPS screaming, no political machinery at work, just good ole corporate self-protection and bureaucratic annoyance. One very small slice of moderation.
