It was posted by Fred the Cohousing-L list manager <fholson [at] cohousing.org>
because it quoted a complete digest which made it too big and it was 
rejected. I trimmed it (a pain at the moment since I had to delete
one line at a time) and restored the subject line from "digest..."

DIGEST SUBSCRIBERS:  Please trim you messages and fix subject lines when

I agree with Tom, language and terminology varies from state to state.
Demeaning responses are not going to be helpful when living in a
cohousing community.

While I do understand how overwhelming it can be, I think that if you are

going to be involved in a multi-million dollar real estate development 
project, learning the language is a requirement.
