I put it more generally, that any activity that generates dangerous or offensive fumes be undertaken with care for other people. If I'm welding I think it's reasonable that I'm required to mask the flash and filter the fumes that I generate, and that I don't weld in ways that inconvenience others without their agreement. But the onus is on me, the welder, to get consent, not on the anti-welding crowd to find me and persuade me not to poison them. > But where is the end to all this? The end is other laws that affect what fake people can do, just as they prohibit real people. Condo associations can't require that members break the law, but I suspect anything else is up for grabs. You can have bylaws that require people to pay dues, provide labour, attend meetings, have children (or not), own pets (or not), whatever you want as long as it's legal. The other limit is what your members will agree to. Whether it's environmentalists banning the consumption of meat, Christians requiring that only married couples are permitted to have sex (and only with each other :), parents demanding that the gate onto the street be kept closed or motorists demanding that dangerous tools be permitted inside the condo, the rules you have are whatever you can persuade your residents to accept. If you are using consensus rather than voting, I expect you're not going to have any rules that you consider insane. Other than the legally required ones, of course. Moz
