HOA shadenfreude

A study conducted by Nevada psychology professor Gary Solomon suggested that oversight over a homeowner’s living conditions creates a two-tailed psychiatric disorder called “HOA Syndrome.”

Talking about his experience inside an HOA in Las Vegas, Solomon said, “I learned that residents, primarily principal homeowners, were living in a war zone, not identifiable by bombs, guns and burning buildings. Rather, a war zone masterfully orchestrated by a few fellow homeowners attempting to control their companion neighbors while making a few bucks on the side and gaining sadistic pleasure from watching their neighbors live in pain.”
