Last week sometime I got a flyer addressed to “White Oak Resident” telling me all about the community at and giving me a code so that I could register and log in.    It sounded like a pretty good idea, when I checked it out, so I started to register, giving them my name, street address,  email address and phone number.  There were the standard privacy disclosures that no one reads and an additional comment that the phone number would not be sold, it was just for verification [like we all haven’t heard that before].  And then I got an error – something was “wrong with my address”.    I thought they meant the email addy and I fired off an inquiry stating I have had that email since Gmail first started up [back when you had to have an invitation to join] and asking what the problem was

Yesterday I finally get a reply from Chester in Support.   Seems that three years ago, there was a registered sex offender in my building – different floor, different apartment number that doesn’t even look vaguely like mine –  and sends me a copy of the report that shows someone of a different age, sex, and ethnicity than me.  This company wants a copy to verify that person is not me, so asked me to submit a photo ID and/or “some other supporting documentation” that includes my unit number so the hold can be cleared.  Their rationale?  “Given the sensitivity of the information shared on Nextdoor, as well as the fact that everyone on the website is a real-life neighbor, it’s very important for us to be extra cautious.”


 I gave them a blistering review, then sent them a scanned copy of a bank statement envelope that clearly shows my name and unit number.  No way am I sending them a copy of my photo ID – I know nothing about them!
