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.
Yep on all of the above.

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 can't speak to that thread, but yes, the above pattern on Leaf FB groups on other topics is similar, although not necessarily ballooning to 200 responses, or as quickly.
For some threads that degenerate into a cluster$%^$%^, I just have to bow out and turn off notifications for that thread. I sometimes just can't take it any more.
What really has been driving me batty sometimes on Leaf FB groups due to the UI is just the number of folks chiming in who really don't have a clue and/or are giving bad info (sounds like that was happening in that "T3" tax credit thread, as well). So, if someone asks a question, there might be a couple right answers (repeated, of course), a whole bunch of wrong ones, sparking more discussion and questions. All of this takes time to read. There might be good discussion that's in a reply to a reply, that the OP and others may never see, as it gets buried.
In other cases, the correct answer is given yet nobody looks at it and people keep chiming in with guesses.
Here's one that bothered me recently, someone at https://www.facebook.com/groups/seattle ... 511860844/
with a '16 and 15.5K miles recently lost a capacity bar. They ask if anyone's experienced this. Of course, a ton of people with NON-2016 Leafs, like 2013s to 2015 in the mild Pacific NW chime in saying "no", giving their mileage, acting (or are) surprised, etc. Ummmm... hello??? The 2016 30 kWh batteries aren't holding up and the 2013 to 2015 Leafs are rather different, to put it mildly. The thread of course has ballooned.
There's another thread which I need to get back to when I have time, where in response to the charge to 80% setting being removed, some idiot is asserting that charging a Leaf to 100% means it's only charged to 80%!!! WTF?!?!? This is WAY off.
Also, if I've participated in a bunch of threads after work at night. If I check in the morning or the afternoon the next day, I might have like 5 to 10+ notifications.
I'm going to have restrain myself and cut back on the amount of time I participate on Leaf FB groups, for my sanity, besides lack of time. I also don't want to get into this sucked into this phase as much:
. Worst case is that I pull out of all but two Leaf groups. That means I'd have come full-circle. For the longest time, I was only on two Leaf FB groups and may revert to that.
