The Buy Nothing Somerville community has grown in leaps and bounds to over 3,000 members. Most Buy Nothing communities limit membership after they reach about 1,000 members, so we’re in uncharted territory here. It’s clear that the growth is putting some strain on one of our missions, which is to use the site to build community. Some un-neighborly behaviors are popping up more often. Today, I drafted a note to remind members of our community-building mission. I know it’ll be well received by most of the membership, but I can only hope that it’s seen and absorbed by all.
