BTW, what's a bit annoying is this new one... At https://www.facebook.com/groups/nissan. ... 524068648/, this guy has an '11 Leaf where he said "My 2011 Leaf just turned over 60,000 miles..still has original tires and brakes...of course I am down to 5 bars." Yet, he actually has 7 capacity bars showing in his pic. For some reason, from dialogue via coments, he doesn't count the 2 red capacity bars. :roll:

Really? If he's had his Leaf for 60K miles...

I guess I should invent another FB account. They actually contacted me last week, offering to help me get back into one of my old accounts, but when I tried to do it, they wanted me to have three people I know send them codes. There may also have been something about ram's blood, so I abandoned that idea.

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

I think he meant that he is down five bars, not down to five bars. He kinda got the word (to) accidentally stuck in there.

No, he meant it, if you read thru his comments. There were weird comments like "I have always treated the red two bars as a reserve" and claims like "But in talking to Nissan they refer only to the white."

Don't know who the "Nissan" is that he's referring to. A clueless dealer employee? Someone at Nissan corporate (also clueless)? Nissan's EV help line? Doesn't seem like he RTFMed.

Social media is not known for proof reading, let alone accuracy. Try to correct grammar and watch the response. I see frequent errors in bar reporting that seem to originate from some people counting bars lost and others counting bars remaining. The FB poster you mention may have meant to write "... of course I am down 5 bars."

As for participating in FB -- no thanks.
Like another poster above, I have an account to use as a generic login elsewhere.

Here's another ugh.

Someone at wanted Leaf Spy info via a dealer https://www.facebook.com/groups/NissanL ... 575959358/ as they're looking to buy used. Someone asks if the (worthless to the customer) battery report would cover it. :lol: :roll: :evil: Uh... of course not.

Someone else in thread again suggests the useless report and later he defends the worthless battery report!

UGH!!!

I think the 8,000 member group was the one "started by Nissan" that was invitation only at startup and was directed ONLY to actual LEAF Drivers. It was moderated regularly by Nissan employees but they then opened it up and they apparently abandoned the site. This is when it went off the rails.

The issue with Facebook is its not moderated. Several sites have active moderators and generally do better but controlling content and comments has not worked well at all and a lot of it is due to how Facebook manages threads.

Too many comments meant to address the OP are interpreted as a comment to a MUCH later post. This causes a lot of confusion and misinformation.

A good example is a thread in the T3 group. It has become an amazingly frustrating circle jerk over the $7500 tax credit. At last count, I think the phrase "tax liability" was mentioned a dozen times but the most recent post asks a question about their W-2 form. IOW; A complete clusterfuck along with several people unable to let it go and repeating the same thing over and over so I get a notice someone responded "to me" and I click on that notice and get taken to the OP of a thread with 200 responses and I am left on my own to find it.

I'm hitting that bug definitely on on Facebook's web site (and less so or not at all on their iOS client?) where when clicking on such a notification, I either only taken to the group and not even the thread or maybe just the OP of the thread, not the correct place (e.g. where the reaction or followup comment is). I think this started within the past few weeks.

In a few cases, on the iOS client, I get taken basically to a 404 error page, which is a head scratcher sometimes. It sometimes leaves me to wonder if the thread/comment got deleted (usually no) or if it's a different bug. In the past, Facebook was pretty "good" about auto-hiding/auto-deleting notifications for comments, threads, etc. that vanished or showing you an error to that effect.

All of these make active threads hard to follow.
