Poor black neighborhood in West Philly. Literally the place Will Smith had to escape from. Neignbords didn't like the plants @mk
put in the front yard and constantly harassed us about it for nearly a year. They were always drunk and insulting us any time we came and left the house even though we never said anything to them and tried to mind our own business. So we put up a screen on our porch to block them, and they started harassing us even more. Then a few days later, the screen disappeared. I confronted them about it and we ended up yelling at each other. She called some guy on the phone and told him to come "deal with". He showed up and lunged at us with what appeared to be a gun. We ran screaming into the basement trying frantically to dial 911 while the neighbors stomped around inside our house yelling at us. Finally the cops came and arrested her and took us to the station. They found the guy but didn't find a gun, but did find other weapons. The next day we launched Spinster. Then we packed some clothes and our cat and got in a plane to Texas. Then we had to drive a car from Texas to Philadelphia and load all our shit into a Pod for three days while the neighbors harassed us more. Then we drove back and now I'm trying to build the fediverse.
