-We seem to have lost our cat Dippy. We have looked everywhere and believe he must have gotten out. He is white with a black tail and some black markings on his back and head. If you've seen him please let me know.

We found our curious cat after 3 days in a neighbor’s garage that had been opened and closed. Check your garages!

These silly motherfuckers outrage me nearly every time I read their posts.

Some fool left a capitol bikeshare bike unlocked/undocked in front of someone's house he was visiting...and was amazed it was gone when he came back out. All the comments were about 'shady people' in the neighborhood and photos/hypotheticals of suspects (all black) based on gut feelings.

Another one was Ring video footage of a brother walking his dog noticing some kids stealing mail, yelling at them, them dropping it, him gathering it and putting it back in the neighbor's mailbox. There were comments of people complaining that that good brother's dog took a piss in the yard of the neighbor, whose mail he was returning--while he was returning it.

I haven't found being on it useful at all.

i just troll the old people. They complain about nonsense. Its fucking horrible. But they always take the bait when i lay into them. The last time I was banned for going off on the idiots that complained about all the car break ins. But every single time it was people leaving their cars unlocked and street parking. Apparently they should be able to park on the street in front of their house with tons of valuables in plain sight and the car unlocked and be able to get back to that car with said stuff in the morning.

Katie, Truxton Circle -
Violent assault at Florida/North Cap
I was assaulted by a woman outside the Valero at Florida/North Cap yesterday (Monday) at around 6:35pm. The attack was very violent. I was crossing the Valero parking lot and planned to cross Florida Ave when I noticed her. She looked strange to me so I started walking away in the opposite direction to avoid her but she spun around, lunged for me and threw me to the ground by my hair. I don't know if she was on drugs or suffering from some serious mental illness (or both), but she was completely out of control. Most of my wounds are defensive and I reportedly was able to fight back pretty well (I blacked out for part of it). She beat my head with her fists, ripped out half my hair, bit my leg and arm, and also tried to rip off my clothing (as a result they are categorizing this as a sexual assault). The police and ambulance were there within minutes and I believe that the intervention of two woman (mother and daughter) may have saved my life. I always exercise common sense and have lived in this neighborhood for 2.5 years. I no longer feel safe in this neighborhood and will be moving ASAP. Please be careful out there - she remains at large and is very dangerous. I thank God she didn't have a knife, and/or that she wasn't a man. I have reported this information to the police.

Description of person involved – Hair: Black, Top: Red or pink, Bottom: shorts, Shoes: I don't know, Age: 24-40, Build: 5'6, Race: Black, Sex: Female, Other details: chunky

Every third comment:
Linda, LeDroit Park -
I'm so sorry to hear this! I'm new to this area and this just terrifies me.

Alyssa, Gallery Place Chinatown -
Thanks for the alert. I don’t blame you for fleeing. The safe neighborhoods in this city no longer are.

Karen, Eckington -
So sorry to hear this and completely understand why you are moving. I see so many people walking the neighborhood at night alone or on streets that I know are dangerous. We need to look for each other and be vigilant at all times. Be good to yourself over the next few weeks. Heal and lots of self care.

You'd think home sale costs would dip, based on all of this alleged apparent danger they describe, instead of increasing.

Truxton Circle isn't overrun with crime.
The responses to her statement allege that it is.

There's certainly video footage, which will lead to an eventual arrest.
I'm doubtful the her account is the entire story.

if anything that neighborhood is experiencing less and less crime.
those neighbors would have readers believe they are in the midst of a sudden plague of violence and illegality.

beyond the victim's recounting being a bit outrageous, the rampant overreaction and conclusion jumping that happens on Nextdoor.

it's an anecdote.
it paints the entire neighborhood as a bastion of violent crime, based on the violent actions of one--clearly mentally ill--person, at least according to all the people on NextDoor cosigning her condemnation of the entire neighborhood.

Rooted in truth by completely over-exaggerated. Like the people that claim people "can't even walk down the street anymore... it's too dangerous," but you look outside and see a grip of little kids playing, neighbors walking up and down the block talking to each other, someone trimming their hedges, etc.

I started noticing this when a lady (white) that I know decided to post a video and go off about a man fighting a woman (domestic, looked like two addicts) in the hood here in Philly. She's NEVER posted anything remotely close to being news, yet here she was completely out of character writing a long essay about the video on Facebook about "some people" are scum.

Of course the dude was black, and the lady was white.

So it at least keeps all the merchants and advertisers at bay.
The flip side is that one of the rules is that you have to use your real name and include your street on the sig line of every message you send or it'll be rejected.
I think some people have gotten on Nextdoor and are always trying to get everyone else to joing...but i'm cool on that..waaaaay cool on that...

...every so often a passive-aggressive post will show up that is what seem to be a coded racial message. Well, there are a lot of Black women on there and they don't play that shit at all. Turns into 50+ post sessions shouting that down real quick.

Other than that, Nextdoor is pretty cool. Mostly conversations about cats, car break-ins, for sale/free, plants, repair guys, etc.
