Did you READ the ad that Dave Adams objected to, and that caused you to read 
him the riot act about being accepting of other viewpoints?

I agree completely with Dave.  This is not cohousing, or any other of the 
"forms of intentional community" that you suggest.  It is blatant 
advertising for the sale of lots for development in fairly typical, 
individual, "summer cottage" or perhaps even good old "suburban bedroom 
community" fashion.  I suspect that Dave, like the rest of us, is more than 
happy to learn from others who are interested in alternative housing, 
intentional communities etc.  I know I am.  But I'm not thrilled to see 
somebody who is obviously just out to make a buck, doing the same old things 
we're all trying to find alternatives to, cluttering up the list.  It didn't 
bother me too much, though, when I first saw it, because I thought, oh well, 
they are barking up the wrong tree and nobody in the cohousing movement is 
going to be so naive as to fall for that EARTH CAMP ONE stuff. . .

Did you just prove me wrong, Rob?
