Trolling Nextdoor

For a while in 2017 and 2018, I did some trolling on

If you’re not familiar with Nextdoor, it’s a social network where your membership in various groups is based on your residence’s address. You can only see posts in your “neighborhood” and surrounding “neighborhoods”.

Nextdoor’s contents have been described as “stray cats and racism”.

These links are to screenshots of with my posts and some of the follow-ups.

I’m quite proud of the Blasphemous Wifi names troll. I wasn’t poking fun at anyone else, I made myself the target of any derision. The subject was easy enough to verify that nosey-parkers could verify that no actual X-rated, blasphemous Wifi names exist, and post that they couldn’t find any such thing.

The Molly and The ex-Stacey post actually made it to r/BoneAppleTea sub-reddit. The Blasphemous Wifi names post made it to the “Best of Nextdoor” twitter account.
