Re: “Racial Profiling Via Nextdoor.com

NextDoor is used for some good things and it's used for some bad things.

Dot.com start-ups reflect the values of their founders, e.g., CEO Nirav Tolia, and investors. From this perspective, I see why NextDoor doesn't seem to mind the "bad" side of what their service is doing to American neighborhoods.

One NextDoor founder has a troubling background of lying on his resume, screwing past co-founders, being charged with a felony hit-and-run, being sued for stealing trade secrets...

and committing whatever unholy acts one must do to raise $250 million from blood-thirsty venture capitalists and attaining a $1 BILLION valuation on NextDoor after just a few years.

So... is anyone surprised that NextDoor catalyzes the nastier underside of human behavior? This wouldn't be the first person I'd ask host a local ongoing discussion in every neighborhood in America.
