The important point is not what you know but what *they* think. I can imagine a con-person thinking: "Cohousing? Socialists, liberal bleeding heart wimps, soft touches, easy marks. And here's a whole national list of them..." It's also not impossible that there are a few right wing screwballs who have got it into their heads that cohousing residents are a bunch of dangerous leftists, part of that vast "Marxist" conspiracy of gays, lesbians, organic gardeners, environmentalists, etc., who are plotting to destroy "America" - and who therefore ought to be harassed and discouraged when opportunity offers. I don't think that either of these categories of people (they may even overlap) are likely to be numerous or to present much long-term difficulty, but you might remember that among 300 million people there are going to be some weird ones. And I presume that there are fads among con-people and nuts as well as others. Roll with the punches.

If I wanted to operate financial scams, cohousing is the LAST place I would go. Too many smart, informed residents, and they all talk to each other. Makes no sense to me. Plus, cohousing communities don't have that many resales.) > > ------------------------------ [snip]
