As a matter of information gathering, I am subscribed and lurk in NextDoor. About 75% is people needing/wanting some handout and the rest is a mix of services’ offerings, and the useful Amber and Silver alerts plus descriptions of suspicious individuals roaming the area and actual crime reporting.

I just got this email notification:

Holy shit! Somebody kidnapped a baby? So I clicked.

Listen Karen and Company: I like dogs, but they are not babies nor deserving to exaggeration of comparing them with actual human babies who may be in danger. And a 16-year-old dog is not a pup and unfortunately and more than likely dropped dead somewhere or got run over by a car.

Holy fuck people, have some brains.

Spread the love

  1. A wee bit harsh there.
    Lots of folks will refer to their pets as family members/children/babies. It is pretty common.
    However, I do agree that if you are looking for a lost dog/cat, please say so in the headline. Leave the “my baby” references for the body of the notice. Getting people concerned that a human baby is missing is just a step toward the “boy who cried wolf.” area.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
