Thanks for the response.

* Re cross cultures---I have continually indicated that Gehl and others have
done their research in the Western World.
* I have never suggested that people just read and/or contact Gehl, there are
people doing Scientific Research on maximizing social networking in
neighborhoods---I am suggesting that folks at LEAST read/contact Gehl.
* I have proposed no rules---just a small portion of the available
information--- the tip of the information iceberg on maximizing social
networking in neighborhoods---I expect that interested people do follow up
with Gehl and they do (by the way Jan speaks fluent English)---I have yet to
see anyone quote another Scientific Researcher in this field, in this
conference. If after folks read the research---folks decide not to use it for
whatever reason---so be it. 
* I am not trying to educate anyone---everybody educates themselves---I am
just the messenger---despite the grumblings from a few folk in this forum.
The private Email I  receive, tells me to keep posting the stuff I have been
posting and to forget about the grumblers.
