Chuck and Katy have a pretty good multi-point definition of CoHousing that you could use to filter those folks who want to put pointers on the web page - or perhaps you can put the pointers in, but put them in a section called "other intentional communities", or some such. One of the most important differences for me between CoHo and other forms of community is its relationship to the mainstream. Given that while CoHo is out on the periphery of housing options in this country, it does face "inward". That is, it is trying to present a model to the rest of the culture that the culture could adopt immediately, given the right conditions. Hence the lively discussions on diversity - CoHo for grad students, CoHo for low-income residents, CoHo for stockbrokers. I feel that many other kinds of community, particularly those based on spiritual foundations, are looking "outward" - they are enacting a future that the rest of the culture may some day catch up with, but they are certainly not going to waste anytime marketing themselves to the mainstream.
