every time i'm close to quitting Nextdoor (pretty much every day) a post comes up that leaves me so surprised at human nature that it seems important to stay on, just as a reminder that there's a whole wide world out there . . .

today's star post was a guy who found a pigeon (urban) half dead in his backyard from cat attack. He puts the pigeon in a box, brings it into his home, and asks Nextdoor for help with what to do.

responses: give it water and seeds, call the local wildlife support centre for a volunteer to come take it, "let nature takes its course" [very unpopular, with personal attack on poster in response]

so what the pigeon rescuer does is call the local vet, who tells him they cannot take the bird 'for health and safety reasons'.

Despite that the guy CALLS AN UBER AND SENDS THE PIGEON IN BOX over the vet. He was widely upvoted and hearted for this action. this may become the community standard.

Hopefully the vet office calls the cops due to th delivery of a suspicious package who then calls the bomb squad who then blows up the pigeon.

I'm beginning to think that we are much more fucked than I thought.

I'm a bit confused, are you saying what the guy did (effectively shifting his problem to the vet) is commendable?

Few items that stood out: that some users would engage in personal attacks, that someone insisting on offloading a problem to others (despite expressly told not to do so) getting positive attention, and that no one/ few commenting seems aware that there's a highly pathogenic avian flu going around, which is what that health and safety reason most likely refers to.

Oh dear. Nothing like dragging out a death and forcing an Uber driver and/or vet to have to kill the bird for you, all the time making others come in contact with possible pathogens.

Though I call BS because I don't think any Uber driver would do any kind of package delivery. That's bad ju-ju to deliver any unknown package.

there are more personal attacks and bad will on Nextdoor (which is 80% about lost/found cats) than here. And zero moderation.

The correct thing to do is hit it with a shovel and end its misery.
