It would work if most people actually did post the responses that they receive individually -- I suspect a lot would not bother. It's an extra step. And for archival purposes I would say the answers are actually more relevant to the subject of cohousing than the philosophical discussions (however fascinating). In addition, sometimes someone else's response reminds you of something unique your own group is doing that you might not otherwise have thought to add to your own response -- or even realized was unique. Certainly I have found the "how to" stuff in the archives a godsend when we have been floundering with some issue -- it saves us reinventing the wheel, or allows us to invent a wheel with the best properties of everyone else's wheels, or alerts us to our pioneering role in coming up with a maglev instead. ;-) Kay Wasatch Commons
