Are you afraid to express your point of view on Neighbourly?

Are you afraid to express your point of view on Neighbourly in case your post will be deleted/ put “on hold” or you may (like me) be kicked off Neighbourly?

It is sad that Fairfax Media (producers of most of the local rags in NZ) now owns at least 45% of Neighbourly yet there is little freedom of expression on Neighbourly (unless you have good thing to say about Neighbourly).

If you have something you want to say, feel free to email me and I will consider putting your point of view on my blog.

Better yet join The Cat’s Pajamas and express your point of view yourself without censorship.



As I have already said in this blog:
I believe NT has a high/heavy-handed hard-line bullying totalitarian sledgehammer approach that is losing the goodwill of members except perhaps for the 99% of members (lurkers) who by definition seldom (if ever) contribute anything and would not buy anything commercially through Neighbourly anyway.

NT’s approach is not congruent with the ideals of what Neighbourly should be all about or of New Zealand culture 😦

NT needs to consider whether their physical neighbours would be talking to them if they treated them the way they treat the members. NT is not being “neighbourly” and would not be a good neighbour 😦

Just because NT gives themselves the right to do these things; it does not mean that it is the right thing to do 😦

So long as what you say does not affect Neighbourly’s business interests the Neighbourly Team (NT)  don’t care of course what you think or feel (they have shown no interest in fixing any bugs [unless they affect the business users]; they probably want you to regard them as features):


Sadly for NT, “booping” my nose with ads and tickets did not work 😦


It is stupid for any group to ignore the feedback from its members (or past members).
It will be interesting to see how readable these are on your device:
