One thing about posting details to the whole group is that info then gets archived. So someday, some brilliant scholar will be able to synthesize all the postings on say: dishwashers in commonhouses, into a usefull summary document. Such an effort was done with all the commonhouse information posted over a 2 year period on cohousing -l, and that info will eventually make its way to the ICRP, where anybody in the world can download it. So don't shy away from posting detials on the list, the odds are high somebody later will ask the same question and we all say.....Go see the posting on the ICRP or cohousing site, or where ever it lands.

As a relative newcomer to the list, the individual response seems the appropriate one for most things, as it helps the person who asked for input, and doesn't take up the time and attention of hundreds of other people. I have responded individually to requests of the what-do-you-do type about legal structures, committee arrangements, participation requirements (or lack thereof), and other such matters. To the whole group I posted one query, regarding what different common houses do about second-floor access: the numerous responses I got were helpful in evolving our planning, but most people don't need the brand and model number of a wheelchair lift. Certain topics may be of such general relevance as to spark discussion and debate via these channels. If one is alert to such potential, there seems no reason to apologize for giving requested info just to the requester. Right? Or am I missing something? Lynn at RoseWind welcome [at] olympus.net
