I'm interested in co-housing and joined this list to get information
straight from the source -- residents themselves.   While I understand not
wanting to be dictated to by outsiders, I'd like to think the list is open
to questions and opinions shared by anyone, whether they're card-carrying
members of a cohousing group already, or not.  The discussion on
cohousing-L is my first "flavor" of how cohousing residents think and
interact.  It's a bit ironic to see you're annoyed by non-members'
suggestions when cohousing is supposed to be about inclusiveness, IMHO.
