Rob--speaking as primarily a lurker who has a long-term desire to get active in cohousing (anyone on this list in the Dayton OH area?), I'd like to think that my contributions to this discussion--every six months or so--will be judged by their sincerity and usefulness, not by whether I'm lucky enough to be in cohousing now. I think I understand your concern for non-cohousers starting flame wars with smarmy criticism. In my experience, to stop those arguments, is doesn't help to differentiate "good" and "bad" list members. It does prevent personal arguments if the group keeps ignores the personal stuff and addresses the legitimate topics at hand. As one listadmin put it, "Trolls wouldn't be so successful if you people weren't so quick to rise to the bait." That said, this is one of the more flame-free lists I've found on the 'net. All of that consensus-building obviously has an effect! ___ _ Thomas E.
