The NoA2DogPark Facebook group lasted for a little under three days. The founder got zero support, and zero "likes" for any of his comments. In contrast, over a half-dozen citizens weighed in in favor of a dog park, took him to task for faulty logic, and other things. These opposing comments (in favor of a dog park, in other words) got over two dozen "likes," and he quickly shut the site down.
