I certainly understand your exasperation with the "gawkers", and was 
surprised that no one before you mentioned the issue of children's 
safety.  I think, though, that those of us who are working on Cohousing 
projects but don't live in one yet may not have thought about issues such 
as this one.  Having the "etiquette" printed in the journal would not 
only clue in novices reading the journal for the first time, but help 
those of us who will need a similar etiquette figure out what and how to 
write our own.
