What a piece of shit.

Mister Yuck - 2020-04-08

This whole app is a piece of shit. It uses "AI" to make predictions about whether a renter will pay on time based on past behavior (it's a blacklist).

Old_Zircon - 2020-04-08

All apps are shit.

Stars for evil obviously.

>>>Because rent seeking is the absolute bottom of the barrel for economic contribution to a society.

I don't agree. A good landlord is supposed to deal with maintenance issues in a timely manner. I've used it, it's a real service. It needs to be regulated, of course. I had a leak in my tub that was pouring water into the apartment below, and the landlord sent someone to fix. I'm really delighted that this wasn't my responsibility, and what if I was the poor bastard living underneath me? What would be my recourse?

Landlords who don't fulfill this responsibility are called slumlords. Jerod Kushner is a slumloard.

On the other hand, I'm not seeing a lot of economic value being contributed by this piece of shit in the video. Landlords making decisions based on data seems like fair play. Adding AI to this is an unnecessary layer of potentially destructive nonsense. Logarthms create an illusion of objectivity, but they tend to reinforce the same old prejudices and take accountability out of the decision-making process. Google deciding what videos to put in my youtube feed is turning out to be not as benign as once assumed. AI making decisions over people's lives, in my opinion, should not be legal.

I like this guy. Using data to make decisions. Why should landlords all sacrifice and bankrupt themselves? Seriously, why would that be ethical?

duck&cover - 2020-04-08

I think that it would be ethical during the pandemic crisis not to make people's lives harder while screaming "Where's my money? Where's my money?"

jfcaron_ca - 2020-04-08

They talk about the landlord's "business" and call tenants "guests", as if the thing that is being rented isn't an essential thing for human life, and as if the renters have any alternatives. Landlordism of this sort is just parasitism, the landlord contributes nothing to the outcome, that's why their revenue is called "rent" and not "profit".

Old_Zircon - 2020-04-08

JF pretty much summed it up. Individual landlords are sometimes fine but the practice itself is inherently unethical.

You can do better than that, Enjoy

Everyone that lost their job and all the businesses that are losing money should eat shit

Landlords must not lose a cent of revenue no matter the situation!

Because rent seeking is the absolute bottom of the barrel for economic contribution to a society.

(plus the whole "people need a place to live" part)

This app is especially toxic because it gives renters a permanent record that they may not even know about that's recorded by landlords. Plenty of good landlords out there, but there are plenty of dirt bags that would deliberately fuck up a person's record to keep them trapped in their slum apartment. My source: a story I person I met whose landlord used bullshit eviction proceedings for exactly that reason.

The landlord would not repair a first floor window after a break-in and install burglar bars. The tenant decided to break her lease and secure a new lease in a new house by the end of the month. The landlord started eviction proceedings, so no one else would touch her. She got out, but was paying extremely high rent in an extremely shitty neighborhood, because that was the only lease she could get with the eviction proceedings going on.

Landlords, aka people without a skill. Boo fucking hoo.

Rent freeze/forgiveness for this pandemic. Nothing else is sane.

I have used data to make a decision about you.

It's not good.

Mr. Purple Cat Esq. - 2020-04-08

Ok I found out what 'naborly' is.....
How the fuck is that legal in any country?
That would be illegal here in several different ways I can think of just off the top of my head, and Ireland is not exactly a bastion of egality.
If I was house-hunting and found a landlord using that I would immediately report them to the residential tendencies board.

betabox - 2020-04-08

You clearly don't live in a libertarian paradise.

SolRo - 2020-04-08

Sounds like you could use some disruption!

Be sure to post tendies to the residential tendencies board hoarde
