A walking score of 8 out of 100 for a 2 km walk. CRAZY!

"6003 Woodwick Drive, Windcrest TX 78239 has a Walk Score of 8 out of 100. This location is a Car-Dependent neighborhood so almost all errands require a car. The closest park is Windcrest City Park. " There is also a comment from a supposed viewer that "friends don't let friends live in areas with low @walkscores." These statement appears on zillow.com at my address and has damaged my ability to sell me house. The walking information you provide to unsuspecting viewers is based on faulty maps that do not three show existing parks within easy walking distance, the VIA bus station a mile away, and shopping opportunities like Walmart and Wallgeen a mile away. As an older person not in great shape, I walk to do my errands that you say are not walkable. The unstated assumption is apparently that if something is more than 20 minutes away, more than three quarters of a mile away, it is not walkable. Many errands to businesses are about a mile away. I walk to them often! I see below that you have not answered a similar complaint for a walking score of 4 out of 100 for a 2 km walk. Please fix.
