Looking to rent or buy? You can check out the schools and inspect the foundation all you want, but only Rotten Neighbor cares to warn you about your potential community.

Not moving any time soon but are amused by the trivialities and poor spelling of strangers? Then this site is still perfect for you. [via]

Bob & Lee's neighbors on Wisteria Lane aren't happy about the new lawn fountain!

The irony of the title of the site is entirely too rich to miss.

These neighbors are constantly watching football... having parties.. making a racket. their kids make it even worse, cant go out for an evening stroll.

One fears for the poster's lawn.

The juxtaposition of using 21st century technology to complain about 1950s (or earlier) concerns is hilarious.

I think anyone who puts any stock in this site is probably a pain in the ass to begin with. We had an obnoxious downstairs neighbor at our last apartment, but how would I know whether he's still there?

I'm very glad to see that nobody in my neighborhood is the sort of obnoxious jackass who would post complaints about other people on this website.

The only listing for my neighborhood sums up exactly how useful this thing is:

Rockstar!
A rockstar lives here. The non-stop parade of gorgeous women showing up at all hours makes it difficult to get any sleep. He keeps his fleet of expensive, foreign sports cars parked on the street so that I have to park my 1986 Toyota two blocks away. Every so often an MTV camera crew shows up and shuts down the neighborhood for some special expose or another. I've tried to stop the rocking. Other neighbors have tried to stop the rocking. I've had the cops try to stop the rocking. Nobody can do a

I can't imagine what would happen if I showed this site to my mother, who still notifies me every time "blacks" or "Indians" move into the neighborhood (there are, surprisingly, no notes in her ZIP code yet).

Geez. This gets better and better. From Chestnut Hill in Boston:

Beware of Old Man With Piano
An exceedingly unpleasant old man with a piano lives in this building. He has complete disregard of his neighbors and often plays hours on end. He plays loudly and without finesse that you may think he is hard of hearing, which may actually be the case, as his television can be heard three floors below from the foyer often well past midnight.

Awesome. When I'm seventy-three, I'm going to name my comeback album "Beware of Old Man With Piano."

"Raging Homosexuals
The two men that occupy this house are raging homosexual post-college boys with nothing better to do than spread lotion on each other with the windows open (amongst other things). I mean, how much lotion do they have in there? Every time I come home they are just standing there rubbing Jergen's on their taught, tanned bodies. It's AWFUL! "

Heh. "Taut, tanned bodies".

Why do I want to advertise to the world that my neighbors are evil? So my home's value goes down even more?

On the other hand, if I've got my eye on a cute bungalow in the next town over, I'm going to report the neighbors as chainsaw-wielding masticators. Maybe that knocks the price down to my range!

All this assumes this site will be very popular. It will not be.

White trash scumbag
Unmarried couple, he's a loser with no balls. She's a GED state employee who thinks she knows EVERYTHING. Shits out children without caring for the ones they already have. Bunch of little girls, dressed like hookers. Just had her first boy. Fat whore sat on her front porch chain smoking till the night before the delivery. Total scumbags.

I've lived here since Dec. 06. Brand new building and neighbors are FANTASTIC! I've made great friendships since I've moved in. You better buy soon, the prices will go up soon when the new stadium, 4 blocks away, is finished.

All the complaints in my neighborhood seem to be about dogs, and about some house where five dudes live, giving each other massages and doing drugs, which seems pretty cool to me.

Time to add some tasty bits of invented gossip!

Looks like an ideal website for pent-up passive-aggressive rageaholics to leave nasty little seething electronic notes about their "sociopathic" neighbors.

The San Francisco entries alone are a veritable potpourri of steaming incivility and hostility, mostly simmering resentments about neurotic landlords and landladies, parking inconveniences, loud amateur rock bands and DJs, late-night parties, and barking dogs, which are hardly unique hazards in most urban environments.

A millennial updating of a time-honored American pastime.

I wonder what would happen if someone posts a note about a resident that is libelous; "so-and-so is a sexual predator" when they aren't, "so-and-so cheats on their wife" when he's been faithful, and so on.

Yeah, no rotten neighbors in my neighborhood either.

When the people running the crack house around the corner from me moved out, I did wonder whether anyone warned the new buyers. Since -- to avoid knocks on the door late at night -- they might want to, you know, repaint? Hang up a banner? ("Screaming Neighbors Crack has moved! Visit us at our new location.")

Nearest complaint to my place is fifteen blocks away, about a whole apartment complex full of people who apparently do not shut their courtyard-facing windows.

Back in the day, I had a roommate who wouldn't bother to close the blinds when he watched porn and jerked off in the living room. His position was, "What the hell are people doing looking in my house? If they don't wanna see it, let 'em stop staring."

The girls next door would never talk to any of us.

So the best, from Napa:

Aliens Visit These People
At night bright lights and flying sauceres are hovering over these peoples property. They get abducted, their kids are screaming, mom and dad are being levitated out of the windows, then a few hours later, the saucers are back and it more bright lights while they get levitated back into bed. This occurrs several times a month. Why can't the aliens just keep them.

accordion guy: Will play accoridion starting at 6AM just to piss off neighbors he perceives as evil. Will not shut window if asked and won't stop playing. He does respond to being sprayed with a hose. Result is a phone call to police but the accordion playing will stop for a few hours.

Hmm, a guy playing an accordion or a guy with the chutzpah to spray his neighbour with a hose. Not really a tough toss up there for worst neighbour.

Either way the "neighbour I wouldn't like to have" award goes to the guy with the hose.

Apparently the users or they changed their input filters. I just did a test at 90210 (which amazingly didn't have any reports yet) because I thought their code might have been case sensitive but the "ass" string appeared in both places correctly.

You wouldn't believe what I have to put up with. I live next door to this house and my second story window overlooks their pool. And once a week I see her banging the pool guy on the diving board. LEt me tell you this is a sight. She has the most amazing body loves to flaunt it. I'm sure her husband is too busy to nitice her so she has the pool guy service her instead. I'm just concerned that one day my kids will see this.
