Stepping up to volunteer with our neighborhood association? Doesnt occur to them.
Far easier to post a screed than to actually work to effect the change they say they want to see.

As for NextDoor, after a few run-ins with people like that, I deleted my account. I think I know what the site founders were hoping to create. But -- around here anyway -- they largely ended up with a junior version of craigslist and a bunch of Ned Flanders post-alikes.
