Barbara -- I am generally utlra sensitve about email messages. I, too, felt the email communication was pretty balanced. I recounted my info because I felt it showed no matter how I tried to check out everything I still had a problem. You can't avoid every possibility. Please note -- no where in my emails did I say a single disparaging thing about the renter I encountered. I used not one negative personal comment nor did I judge her at all. In truth ... my feelings about her to this day are that she is a person struggling to make her way in the world -- she has a strategy for doing that that caused me time, money and effort. That's on me. I wonder how her strategy is working for HER? And also ... in this case we're talking about the problem of renting to a person "making the rounds" of a set of cohousing communities in CO. My question still is regarding multiple rentals in the same community by this person -- are people not talking to each other in the community? This is a bigger issue to me than the renters in question. And this is one reason to develop good communication lines BETWEEN cohousing communities in a region -- pass along information informally that may be use to other cohousers in your area. We have a process for doing that in Mid Atlantic Cohousing because the community reps meet once a month. (I'm NOT just talking about renters -- how about property taxes, schools, issues of concern to homeowners?) There have 15 or more cohousing communities in CO. Could a regional organization have helped w/ this situation? Including helping the renters themselves?
